Merry Christmas! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.
You know how people give you those little loaves of banana or zucchini bread for Christmas? Well, that’s a little too nutritious for me. lol
So I take my fave-from-scratch chocolate cake recipe, put it in those little loaf pans and gift them. If you bake this in smaller pans, you must adjust the time. (BTW, my husband requests this cake every year for his birthday.<g>)
Chocolate Applesauce Cake
Preheat oven to 350.
1/2 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
Cream the above.
Add 2 eggs.
Add 2 teaspoons vanilla.
Add 2 cups unsweetened applesauce.
Combine the following:
Just under 2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add dry ingredients to moist and mix 2 minutes.
Pour into greased and floured 9×13 pan.
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Bake for 35 minutes.
Enjoy! Do you have a fave chocolate recipe?
