This is a cake my late mother used to make. I can say that it's one of the best ever chocolate cakes. Very moist.

The recipe needs to be re-written. The ingreds call for applesauce, but there is no mention in the directions when or how to add it. Also, adding melted chocolate to a mixture containing raw eggs could scramble the eggs. I would suggest adding the melted chocolate to the sugar first and then adding softened butter before the eggs go in...which is when I would add the applesauce. I made this last night for a friends birthday get-together...so still not sure how it tastes.
