This chocolate cake recipe is very moist and rich. I have also made it in mini loaf tins as Christmas presents.
Delicious, easy and very moist (because of the apples). Has no oil either like many of these kinds of recipes (the apples replace it) so you don't get the added fat and calories. To help clarify...2 cups of apples is about 3-4 apples depending on size. I dusted mine with confectioners sugar for a nice presentation. - 06 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I knew I should not have made it, as I can't stop at just one piece. It is wonderful and requires no icing or frosting. - 14 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
First off, I changed a few things about this recipe which may be why I didn't think it was a 5-star recipe...I am a self proclaimed recipe changer..drives my hubby crazy! I chopped the apples instead of shredding and I used 3 cups total. I substituted homemade applesauce for the butter to make it healthier and because I had a lot! I also used 4 tablespoons cocoa powder. I really enjoyed it, my hubby did not like the apple-chocolate combo. Very moist even without the butter. Maybe next time I will shred the apples and see if it changes the result any. I will try this recipe again! - 06 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
