The method states oil in this recipe but there is none in the ingredient list. Can you tell me how much oil should be added please?
This cake has a very nice consistency: Its moist and soft on the inside with a lovely crunchy top. I baked mine as muffins and that worked out very well. The taste was quite nice but I didnt really care for the cocoa powder, cause I felt it made the cake a bit bitter. I think next time I will leave it out and add some more spices to the cake.
THANK YOU for sharing this guiltfree treat with us, Kasha.
Excellent snack cake! It was very moist and packed a lot of flavor! I too used Splenda as the sweetener and, based on previous reviews, I upped the 'sugar' content to 3/4 of a cup and found that just right. It was so easy to make, the ingredients were all on-hand and without the sugar and fat, I definitely will make this again and again!
Good points - quick to make, low sugar (made for diabetic uncle) and good texture. Not so good - based on earlier comments, I increased the sweetener to 1 cup (I used Splenda instead of sugar.), but still thought it just wasn't sweet enough.
Super for when you NEED chocolate cake but can't afford the calories! I ran two Gala apples through my food processors and used the puree in place of the apples and applesauce (about 1-1/4 cups total). Didn't peel the apples. Came out moist and yummy. Thanks!
For a healthy cake, this was really good. very moist.
This was awesome! Even my boyfriend who is getting tired of my constantly making "healthy" stuff kept eating this cake! When I took some to a friends house he got mad that I was taking his cake away. I tinkered a little did not have white flour so used buckwheat flour and one tablespoon of vital wheat gluten instead and did not feel like peeling an apple so replaced it with 3/4c of homemade applesauce. This will be making a regular apprence in our house. Thanks Luv 2 bake I will be checking out your other recipes!
I tried yesterday and it tasted bland and horrible. If I were you I would not try this recipe.
A good start for a recipe. I didn't care for the apple part, but think that maraschino cherries would make a nice addition and maybe some nuts. I think the chocolate cake is great for being lighter I would just try different mix ins.
I made this as muffins/cupcakes, also increasing the amount of cocoa. I like them as a healthy chocolate treat, but there could be more flavour to them and they are not sweet enough for everyone. (I also didn't peel the apple and don't think that made much difference)
