Essential Ingredients

Butter/Canola Oil Combo
Subbing vanilla-infused oil for some of the butter saves 174 calories and 15g of sat fat per serving.

Two Eggs
We reduced the traditional pound of eggs by 75% and cut another 47 calories and 1g of saturated fat per serving.

Nonfat Buttermilk
The thick, tangy milk makes up for our drastic fat reduction by balancing the cake with richness and moisture.
