I'm not overly-nuts about cakes but my kids are
so, to use some apples, I chose to try this recipe
from a friend. I've always liked to have
something homemade ready for the kids
(and any visiting friends)
after school, esp at the start of a fun weekend.
(I was cutting up/baking fresh pumpkin at the same time--
who needs candles and scented oils with all of that going on??)
Typically, I shoot for healthier but...well, it's fall
and it was Friday! Grab some coffee and
enjoy this one while it's still warm!
Cocoa Apple Cake
3 eggs 2 c white sugar
1 c butter, soft 1/2 c water
2 1/4 c flour 2 T (or more to taste) cocoa powder
1 t baking soda 1 t cinnamon
1 t allspice 1/2 c semi-sweet choc chips
2 c grated apple 1 T vanilla
- Cream together eggs, sugar, butter and water till fluffy.
- Sift together dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture; mix well.
- Fold in choc chips, apple and vanilla. Stir just until mixed.
- Place in greased/floured bundt pan. Bake 325' for 60 - 70 mins, till cake tests done.
(opt: add a choc glaze when cool. I just made a simple one
with butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, vanilla and milk)
Oh, yes--happy fall!
