Applesauce Brownie Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You could probably reduce the oil amount and add in more applesauce to reduce the fat :)

I found the brownies to have a nice moist/cake texture to them but found the flavour was lacking. I followed the recipe but followed the suggestion of putting the brownies in at 350 for 20 min which was a good amount of time. Unfortunately the brownies seemed to lack a nice chocolate taste to them and I felt like it could have used more sugar as well. Frosting them will probably help give them the sweetness they need. Sorry but not one of my favourites :(.
