Breakfast was a baked oatmeal dish. A cross between traditional oatmeal and a large oatmeal cookie, it was enjoyed by all. Will blog about that another day when I remember to take photos. Not that they'll be good photos- my cooking skills far exceed my photography skills. But still, I'd like to give it a try.
Today's feature is the title- Chocolate Applesauce Cake. The 'cake' part got the kids attention, as did the presence of Chocolate. All good.
|Bonus crumbs... the downside of slicing when warm. The price I have to pay for impatience.|
This one came from a gluten free recipe on araisinandaporpoise.com - the original flour was buckwheat. I replaced the 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour with 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour. The consistency of the batter and the finished product were exactly as expected. I think the sugar can be reduced- I'll also make it next time as muffins.

InstructionsAfter the cake cooled, I sliced the rest and wrapped each piece in wax paper and put them in my baking box. This way, the kids (and husband) can take portions instead of ALL the remaining cake.
|Yum. I give the remaining 8 portions about a day.|
