This sounded really, really good and healthy. Plus, since I have never tried a recipe from Weight Watchers I thought it might be fun. Ridiculously easy….literally ridiculous! Since I have a girls night coming up, and we are all terrified of swim suit season, it would be a safe bet to bring this as my contribution!
I would like to thank Versatilekitchen.blogspot.com for sharing this recipe! The chocolate chips so make this cake! Get your game on with this special treat! ….ridiculously…….ridiculously……….;-)
2 1/4 cup AP Flour
3 TBSP Unsweetened natural cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup Mini Chocolate chips
1 tsp Vanilla
Preheat oven to 350˚.
Spray a 10 cup bundt pan with vegetable oil spray.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt, cocoa and baking soda. Set aside. In a medium bowl, mix together applesauce, oil, & sugar. Stir in the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to wet and mix gently. Stir in the chocolate chips and fold without over mixing the batter. This batter is very thick. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 35 – 40 minutes. Or when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn on to the rack to cool completely.
I dusted this cake, as you can, tell with just some confectioners sugar, but do feel free to make some kind of icing. Really not an icing fan here, not liking the sugar amounts, but ice cream (my personal favorite) is the perfect topping for this desert. It is sorta dense, needs the chips to kick it up a notch, so vanilla ice cream or a coffee ice cream would be perfect for guests.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine wherever you are!
