This chocolate, apple and walnut cake is a great Christmas alternative to the plum pudding being easier to make and tastes just as good.
Wow!!!! This is an incredibly moist, wonderful, chocolate cake! The spices, chocolate, and raisins work beautifully together. Don't wait for Christmas! - 13 Feb 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This consistently gets rave reviews, even from people who would turn their nose up at any kind of fruitcake. It has a great taste and a nice texture, without being tough. I've served it with Creme Anglaise, and I've also soaked it in liquor and brought it to the table aflame in Christmas pudding tradition! I usually use a mixture of golden and purple raisins, and I substitute pecans for the walnuts. - 16 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Fabulous Cake! It was absolutely wonderful. The only thing I won't do next time is flour the pan - with the generous amount of non-stick cooking spray I used, it wasn't necessary. Definitely a place in my home. - 27 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
