    I made this today with my kids and they LOVED it...I had the worse chocolate craving and it did the trick. I added 2 more TBSP of cocoa to the recipe to make it a little more chocolatey and put a small amount of low fat cream cheese/ cocoa icing on top..very good..Thanks!! - 3/9/08

    It was OK, but not great. I've found better chocolate-fix options on here. Agree that it just feels like it lacks in taste. - 2/14/09

    Not much flavor like it was missing something. My hubby didn't like it, but the kids did. I put some powdered sugar on top and it made it a little better. I think I would try adding in some mashed bananas with the apples. I used applecider vinegar since it didn't specify. - 2/26/08

    I am always skeptical of low-fat chocolate cake, especially one without eggs - but it was great! I used Cool Whip Lite for a topping - no one even knew it was healthy. - 1/24/08

    I was skeptical about this cake, but made it as a trial... I thought it was wonderful as did the boyfriend who is anti "diet" food... I used a betty crocker frosting which added alot of calories, but it was still under my daily allowance for dessert! Will make again!!! - 2/11/08

    I will not make again. I was skeptical and should have known better, dessert is suppose to be a treat and I will just have to remember that and eat regular desserts and just eat smaller portions. - 2/7/08

    I would rather make a more traditional (less healthy) version and eat a smaller piece. This didn't taste like dessert to me. - 1/31/08

    I thought it was great, as did my co-workers. I think I may try to substitute bananas instead of applesauce next time. Great chocolate fix!! - 1/24/08

  • This was amazing! My kids are sugar intolerant so I used Splenda instead and it still came out great. I then used sugar free chocolate pudding as the frosting and was able to use it as a birthday cake! Definitely a keeper!!! - 3/4/12
