Chocolate Deli Cake
(I talked about this recipe here)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup brewed coffee
whipped topping or other frosting
chocolate bar, optional
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Beat with a mixer until batter is smooth.
Pour batter into a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Frost with whipping cream, whipped topping, or any frosting your heart desires.
Using a sharp knife, thinly shave a chocolate bar over the frosting.
