Increased the cocoa to 1 cup. Added 1/4 cup applesauce. Batter was very thin, but I went ahead! I made 2 x 8 inch rounds and 10 cupcakes with 1/4 cup batter each. It was perfect - this does rise up a lot, so leave space in your pans. I baked for 20 minutes until a toothpick came out clean. PERFECT! It has a soft light very moist texture and I needed a change from my usual dense chocolate cake. I added Kahlua Ganache for the fill, covered it in Chocolate buttercream, piped on some pink buttercream roses and it looked amazing - and tasted just as good! It did seem 'sticky' when I took it out, so do make sure you wait a little to take out of the pan and make sure you grease and flour your pans well.
