Introduction

Everyone loves this cake. I make it healthier by cutting the fat with applesauce. I personally do not like to use the artificial sugars; but you could further reduce calories that way.
Also, the original recipe calls for just a half a cup of chocolate chips; but I did the nutritional info for a whole cup sprinkled over the top.

    LOVE THIS CAKE!!! I actually prefer this one over high calorie cakes. I use applesauce in it cause I've always made that change in baking but i also do not put chocolate chips in the recipe or on top. Its yummy without them :) - 1/30/18
