    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is not a deep dark chocolate cake, I can tell you that it is extremely moist and very good, and is great even without any frosting, you may want to cut back on the sugar if using sweetened applesauce.

      Thank you Kittencal! This is my GO TO Chocolate Cake Recipe. Way more than a "snack cake".
      I usually make cupcakes with it. It makes about 18 cupcakes if you fill the cups 3/4 of the way. Cupcakes take about 18-20 mins at 350. This cake is sooooooooo good. I don't eat sugar, so I used whey low in this recipe and NO ONE can tell the difference. I've also made with a variety of flours (gluten-free, low carb, whole wheat pastry flour) and it's just as good. And since I'm already using unsweetened choocolate squares, here is the EASY frosting that I use:

      Old Fashioned Hard Fudge Frosting:
      1 cup sugar
      1/2 cup milk
      1 tsp. butter
      1 tsp. vanilla
      2 squares unsweetened chocolate

      Add sugar and milk, butter. Stir until boils HARD! Boil HARD 6 minutes. Don't stir while boiling. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and chocolate. Stir until chocolate melted. Pour over cake. Will be a hard, shiny frosting. Tastes like fudge. Frosting sets up very quickly.

      Very moist. I didn't have applesauce, so I substituted the same amount of oil Cake was a big hit with my chocoholic friends. Several asked for the recipe. I didn't have an 8" pan, so I used a 9" springform pan. Worked perfectly.

      This is THE BEST chocolate cake ever. It is soooo moist thanks to the applesauce and the buttermilk. Really the best Chocolate Cake I've ever had. My husband ( who is not a cake fan ) loved it. I have made this now 3 different times. Twice for when I was having company and once for my son's birthday party....great recipe! Thanks!
