Chocolate Applesauce Cake

This is a variation on the applesauce cake that I posted before. Since chocolate is a food group unto itself, we never hesitate to use it often.

Chocolate Applesauce Cake

  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T. unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 2 c. applesauce

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil, eggs adn applesauce and beat well. Pour into greased 15x9x2 inch glass pyrex pan. Sprinkle the top of the cake mixture with 2 T. sugar and 1/2 c. chopped walnuts. Add these nuts RIGHT before you put the cake in the oven or they will sink to the bottom.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until done when tested with a toothpick or skewer. This recipe can be halved and baked in an 8 inch cake pan.
