"Harkening back to the Depression Era of the 1930s, this easy-to-make chocolate cake is, well, amazingly chocolatey!  With a couple of “secret” twists, every bite is sinfully rich – from the luscious and creamy sweetness of the homemade chocolate frosting to the moist and delicious cake – making this cake a chocolate-lovers dream.  My grandmother’s recipe, this eggless chocolate cake is a family favorite, handed down to each successive generation because it’s the only chocolate cake requested for family get-togethers."

Can I swap out the vegetable oil for something else? I recently heard that corn oil was twice as healthy as olive oil, but I know unsweetened applesauce is even better for diabetics. I want to try this recipe, but I am trying to keep it as light as possible when I do.

Hi SissieSass, we haven't tried this recipe with applesauce, but it should work out fine. Enjoy! - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeCasseroleRecipes
