Method

 
Preheat oven to 180 ºC. Lightly coat a 23 x 33 cm baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. CAKE: In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder. Set aside. In another, large bowl, using an electric mixer on the highest speed, beat the egg whites for 90 seconds. Add apple sauce, buttermilk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add half of the flour mixture and beat on a low setting until just mixed. Add the remaining flour mixture and beat on high for 2 minutes. Transfer to the baking pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean and the sides of the cake come away from the pan. Cool completely. ICING: Beat the cottage cheese in a small bowl until smooth and fluffy. Add 1/2 cup icing sugar and beat on low until smooth. Add 1 tablespoonful each of buttermilk and cocoa powder, beat again. Add remaining ingredients, except nuts, in 2 lots, beating until smooth. Chill icing for about 30 minutes. Spread over cooled cake. Scatter nuts evenly on top.
