This is a super easy, snack cake that my mom made when I was growing up. One bowl, one pan and you are done. I like recipes like that. Mix it by hand, no mixer necessary. We call this whole wheat applesauce cake. I have made it with homemade chunky applesauce, unsweetened, cinnamon or just regular applesauce, and they all turn out great. It is a perfect fall treat.
Chocolate chips are supposedly optional, but not in our world, so load them on. They make them extra special! Enjoy!
Whole Wheat Applesauce Cake
2 cups whole wheat flour (and if you don't have whole wheat, just use white, that is fine, or any combination of both if you like, but 100% whole wheat is really good)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
Chocolate chips to sprinkle on the top
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl except chocolate chips and mix well. Pour into greased 9x13 pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake 25-30 minutes.
