  2. This is a very light cake for when you want something sweet, but not too much. The apple bits are delightful.
  3. This was delicious. I added walnuts and made a brown sugar and butter sauce for the top. So good. I keep looking for the egg but it doesn't need one. Moist and fluffy. I guess it is the apples. Thank you so much for sharing.
  4. I love the recipe, it's easy to make and is like a brownie, I used Bob's whole wheat flour and added some walnuts. I'll make this one again, Thanks
  5. As someone else said it's more like a brownie. Very easy to make and I love the chocolate-apple combination. I could imagine eating it warm with a dollop of icecream - yum!


  1. Very tasty, very moist. I really enjoyed the slightly unusal combination of chocolate and apples. I made a few subs- I used whole wheat pastry flour for the flour, butter rather than oil, sucanat (evaporated cane juice) instead of sugar and switched out the water/lemon juice for buttermilk (I've got some on hand that needs to be used up soon!). Worked very nicely and very moist. I would say to be sure that you have a very apple-y apple that will stand up well to baking, because the delicate apple flavor is easily overpowered by the chocolate. The moisture in this made it lovely and fudgy, but it wasn't overwhelmingly chocolaty (if there is such a thing??) Anyhow, a lovely recipe and a nice change from the usual plain apple-cinnamon combo.
