A rich and moist chocolate cake, topped with a warm chocolate fudge, this chocolate cake is perfect for any birthday.
For the cake:
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce*
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup cane sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups oat milk
For the Fudge:
3 7.4oz cans of coconut condensed milk
3 to 4 tbsp. cocoa powder (depends on how rich you like it)
*Tip. If the applesauce that you're using was previously refrigerated, you might want to leave it out for a while so that it becomes room temperature. If you don't then the coconut oil will become clumps when it comes into contact with the applesauce.
The chocolate fudge that goes on this cake is absolutely delicious (I lick the pan clean), and you can use it for other desserts too! Over a brownie or in an ice cream sundae, this fudge is the perfect topping!
