How to Make Chocolate Chip Applesauce Cake


  1. Cream sugar, shortening and eggs. Add applesauce and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add. I personally don't sift but you can.
  2. Use a oblong cake pan and spray with pan spray I coat with flour as to not stick. Pour into your prepared pan the batter.
  3. On top of the cake batter sprinkle the chocolate chips, the nuts and your sugar.
  4. Bake and 350 degrees
    for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
