Yield: 16 servings

2 1/4 C cake flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp margarine
1 1/4 C sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp orange peel
3/4 C skim milk

3 oz lowfat cream cheese
2 Tbsp skim milk
6 Tbsp cocoa
2 C confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

To prepare cake:
Preheat oven to 325 °F.
2. Grease 10-inch round pan (at least 2 1/2 inches high) with small amount of cooking oil or use nonstick cooking oil spray. Powder pan with flour. Tap out excess flour.
