2 1/4 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
semisweet chocolate chips
Delicious, easy and very moist (because of the apples). Has no oil either like many of these kinds of recipes (the apples replace it) so you don't get the added fat and calories. To help clarify...2 cups of apples is about 3-4 apples depending on size. I dusted mine with confectioners sugar for a nice presentation.
I like apple cake. I like chocolate cake. I'm not too crazy about the combination.
First off, I changed a few things about this recipe which may be why I didn't think it was a 5-star recipe...I am a self proclaimed recipe changer..drives my hubby crazy! I chopped the apples instead of shredding and I used 3 cups total. I substituted homemade applesauce for the butter to make it healthier and because I had a lot! I also used 4 tablespoons cocoa powder. I really enjoyed it, my hubby did not like the apple-chocolate combo. Very moist even without the butter. Maybe next time I will shred the apples and see if it changes the result any. I will try this recipe again!
I knew I should not have made it, as I can't stop at just one piece. It is wonderful and requires no icing or frosting.
My mother has made this cake for years at Christmas time. You can't find a richer, moist cake in the WORLD.
I love this recipie. like most people i chnaged it. i wantd to make muffins with this so i added 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and cooked them at 350 for about 30 minutes and they came out great
this was sooo good. didn't last very long in my house. kids loved it.
My mother makes this cake every year for Christmas morning. It's fantastic! She does not think it works well in a bundt pan; I haven't tried it in anything but a loose-bottom tube pan. Would love to hear bundt success stories, as I'd love to make the cake in my Cathedral bundt pan!
