An unbelievably moist chocolate cake, thanks to the sneaky addition of apple sauce. Using apple sauce means there's less butter in the recipe, but the cake is still rich and moist and you don't taste any apple. Each serving is only around 6.5g of fat. You can also sprinkle about 100g of chopped walnuts over the top of the cake, which is delicious!
You can use two 23cm or three 20cm cake tins instead, or make these into cupcakes by using a muffin tin. Simply adjust baking time as necessary.
Lovely chocolatey cake that was popular with the whole family. - 08 Sep 2012
Excellent recipe. Even though my butter & sugar didn't cream very well. The cake turned out perfect. Very moist, great way to use up apples. I used walnuts instead of chocolate chips. Made a fudge icing with good quality cooking chocolate, a little butter, a little icing sugar & a little cream. Yum yum. - 26 Jan 2017
