    Chef Dudo's Note:

    Had some leftover homemade cranberry compote/jam and some apple sauce. Thought I would use it to make a chocolate cake. Used a compilation of some cake recipes. It turned out very well! The cake is moist and very "chocolatery". You can sub the cranberrycompote for any jam you like.

      I'm avoiding stars just in case I did something terribly wrong; my experience with this recipe was disheartening, to say the least. A few nights ago I was bored and had all of these ingredients on hand- I, too, was looking to use leftover jam and some applesauce that simply was never going to be eaten. I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour- other than that I followed it to a T. Still, it was very off- you could tase the chocolate, but thats it! It wasn't nearly sweet enough. I tried it again with regular flour and 1/2 a cup more sugar and it was just as awful. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I do recommend sweetening it some more- I would almost consider doubling the sugar, but 4 cups is a bit much. I hope others are brave enough to experiment with this, as it is a great idea.
