Chocolate Cake Recipe

Here´s a cake recipe where I´ve replaced vegetable oil with apple sauce.
Ingredients: 4 free-range eggs, 1&1/2 cups brown sugar, 50g melted or grated chocolate, 1 cup applesauce, 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder.
Preheat your oven to medium. Beat the eggs, sugar and chocolate with a mixer until thick and creamy(about 3 minutes) then add the applesauce a little at a time while beating on high. Combine the flour and baking powder, reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour a little at a time until just mixed through. Bake at medium heat for about 45minutes. My kids love this cake and I make it atleast twice a week. You can add a chocolate glaze and whipped cream for special occasions.
