Chocolate Applesauce Cake 2

Yield: 12 servings

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 20 oz Unsweetened applesauce
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix the dry ingredients together; then add the applesauce and stir briefly until well mixed.
Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of pan you use: more for small, deep pans and less for a 9 X 13 pan.
Test by inserting a toothpick into the center; it's done when the toothpick comes out clean.

If you want a really decadent-tasting chocolate cake that's vegan, but not fat-free, try the one in Bro. Ron Pickarski's Friendly Foods.
I bought a cake at the deli counter of my local health-food store, and they said that the recipe was the one in Friendly Foods.
I've never made it, though, because it's more complicated to make and more fattening than I want.
