Cocoa Apple Cake

This is a recipe I originally found on the back of a 5# C & H sugar bag in the 1970's. It is a wonderful moist cake with a delicious, unique flavor because of the added chocolate & chocolate chips & cinnamon. I lost the recipe about 25 yrs ago and was thrilled to find it again in All Recipes.com a few years back. I tweaked it a bit with additional chocolate chips and use different spices. I always add a glaze to the cake too. It can also be made in loaf pans for gift giving. It would make great cupcakes too. Enjoy!
