"This is a bit of an unusual cake, but great for Christmas. The chocolate mixed with raisins, applesauce, and spices gives a nice texture with a lot less work than plum pudding itself."

Good with the brandy butter sauce, but not sweet enough to eat for dessert by itself.

Excellent! Odd ingredients but GREAT results. The final texture is moist and heavy-yum...

I used 2 1/2 cups of pureed frozen plums soaked in 2 oz of spiced rum (instead of apple saucce & raisins). I did not have nutmeg, so I used ground ginger instead. Also omitted walnuts.

Good with the brandy butter sauce, but not sweet enough to eat for dessert by itself.
