In all the giving that I’ve done to my church through the choir, offetories, Sunday School, and more, there is one thing that has made it all worthwhile. Aside from the obvious, of course.
One of my fellow choir member was in charge of the social hour a month or so ago and made the most delicious cake. And it was dairy free naturally without being switched up. We all loved it, and I made it again this weekend. Unfortunately, some people in my house thought it was good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so I didn’t get any pictures of it!
It’s really a great cake and so easy to throw together. Find this type of recipe and more with this week’s Tempt My Tummy Tuesday with Blessed With Grace! I have found so many yummy recipes. I didn’t manage to do it this week, but if I have time next week, I’ll share my favorites that I’ve made so far.
Chocolate Chip Applesauce Cake
1/2 c oil
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 c applesauce
2 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
3 T cocoa powder
2 T sugar
1/2 c chopped nuts (which I would never put into a recipe because I simply don’t do nuts)
1 c chocolate pieces (orrrrr possibly more if you accidentally spill some on the cake — just accidentally, of course)
Mix the oil and the 1 1/2 c sugar. Beat in the eggs. Stir in cinnamon, salt, applesauce, baking soda and cocoa. Add the flou and mix until just moistened.
Pour mixture into a greased and floured 13×9 pan.
Sprinkle with 2 T sugar, nuts (or not), and chocolate pieces. You can lightly stir this in or leave on top. I tend to leave it on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. If it starts to brown too much on top, cover with foil — but I’ve never found the need to do that.
If you really want to, you can serve it with a whipped cream garnish. Just sayin’….
