Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
I make this cake all the time for birthdays or special occasions. It is my go to recipe for chocolate cake. It never fails me and it never gets old hearing, "Man, this is good chocolate cake!" after people take their first couple bites. I usually top it with coconut pecan frosting, the kind used for german chocolate cake. At first I made it exactly as the recipe says. Now I make it with 1 cup unsweetened applesauce instead of oil and only use 1 cup of chocolate chips like others suggested. Reduces the calories substantially. 1 cup of oil is 1984 calories and 224 grams of fat. 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce is 100 calories and 0 grams of fat. That means I've eliminated 1884 calories and 224 grams of fat from the entire cake and I swear, I cannot taste the difference between the two. My father and brother did not notice the difference either when I fed them the applesauce version for the first time on their birthdays.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
Simple and delicious recipe. And I do need simple since I don't like to bake too often. This recipe came out very moist with a bit of crunch on the edges. The cornbread is slightly sweetened.. not really sweet...so it's perfect to go with some honey butter. I like really sweet cornbread so I'll be adding a bit more sugar next time.
