To make the cake, preheat oven to 350F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda. Set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on the highest speed, beat the egg whites for 90 seconds. Add applesauce, 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 batter to the prepared pan.

Add 1 tablespoon each of buttermilk and cocoa powder; beat until smooth. Add half of the remaining sugar, buttermilk and cocoa powder; beat well. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth. Spread over cooled cake. Scatter nuts evenly on top of the frosting. Slice and serve.
