    Trisha W's Note:

    I love chocolate - so it's much better for me when a serving of cake only has 119 calories as this one does. I suspect, though I haven't tried it, that reduced calorie strawberry or cherry spread would be good (in place of apricot), and give a pretty red color for occasions like Valentine's Day.

    1. 1
      Combine the first six dry ingredients (through salt) and set aside.
    2. 2
      Beat with a mixer, using high speed, the sugar and margarine until creamy; add the egg and vanilla extract beating until smooth.
    3. 3
      Gradually beat in the flour mixture (from step one) alternately with the buttermilk until the batter is smooth.
    4. 4
      Evenly divide the batter between two 8" square pans, sprayed with non-stick spray; then bake at 350*F for 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
    5. 5
      Cool, remove from pans, placing 1 cake on a serving platter flat side up; set aside.
    6. 6
      In a small pan, heat the fruit spread over low heat about 2-3 minutes, until melted; then brush 1/4 cup of the melted spread on top of the cake on the platter; then brush the rest of the spread on the flat side of the remaining cake and place on the first cake, fruit-spread sides together.
    7. 7
      Evenly sprinkle the top of the cake with the powdered sugar and cut into 12 pieces.

      This cake made my home smell like a bakery while it was baking. It took exactly 30 minutes to bake in my AMC Dutch Oven. It tastes like cotton{its sooo soft}. Its yummy!!! I decorated this with the Easter flowers and bunnies I brought back from Orlando and they looked awesome. This is a treat for dad's co-worker who has been requesting me to bake him a cake since the last 9 months. LOL. I will make this again. Thank you!!
