Chocolate Applesauce Cake
Mix together by hand or using an electric mixer:
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
1 1/4 c. sucanat (sugar)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sour milk, buttermilk, or yogurt
1 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
Add in and mix well:
2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. cocoa powder (the dark chocolate is my favorite!)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
Pour into 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
Cool and top with Never Fail Chocolate Frosting!

Never Fail Chocolate Frosting
Melt together in a small/medium sauce pan over medium-low heat:
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. butter (or coconut oil)
3/4 c. sucanat (sugar)
Bring to a rolling boil for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 c. chocolate chips.
Mix/Beat until creamy.
Spread immediately on cooled cake -- frosting hardens as it cools.
Covers one cake in a 9x13 pan.
Recipe can be doubled for extra thick frosting or for a layer cake.
