Chocolate Applesauce Cake


(1 vote) 5 1

This is an old family recipe which I have served to my family over the last 40 years. We have enjoyed it and I am now passing it on to my own too. It is so neat because it does not need a frosting! It was fun for the kids to help me make this topping with the chocolate chips and nuts on top. Since it is made with applesauce, it is quite moist and delicate--and the taste: oh my gosh!
