    Mareesme's Note:

    At last, an easy-to-make "scratch" cake recipe that does not need frosting! Recipe has been modified from one given to me by a friend years ago... 6/30/07 NOTE: This is not a standard chocolate cake recipe nor a spice cake recipe. The cocoa and chocolate chips help add to the "dark chocolaty" flavor and appearance but the applesauce and spices give it a unique flavor addition, producing a dark, moist cake with a different flavor with the added bonus of being a no-frost cake.

      This recipe came out great. The applesauce doesn't really taste through the chocolate and cocoa, rather it adds a huge amount of moisture and richness. I often don't like chocolate cake for not being chocolate-y enough, but this cake really hit the spot. I like cinnamon with chocolate, however I think I might drop it next time, as it does confuse the flavors a bit. Wonderful use of applesauce that was left over! Thanks for posting!

      This was great. Very moist and tasty. Kids were a little put off by the cinnamon smell but loved it after they tasted it. I didn't have any nuts so used extra chocolate chips. I think walnuts or even peanuts would be really good. Took 40 minutes and maybe could have gone another 5.
