This is one of my husband's favorites. I modified a made-from-scratch cake recipe, for this very easy, delicious cake. It presents beautifully with the white glaze and chocolate stripes.

Ingredients

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 pkg instant chocolate pudding mix (3oz)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp coffee powder, instant
  • 1/3 cup bourbon (Marker's Mark)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted (unsalted preferred)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp corn syrup, light
  • 3-4 Tbsp light cream, 1/2-n-1/2, and/or milk
  • 1 oz chocolate chips, semi-sweet, melted

Baking Instructions

  1. Combine together in a large mixing bowl cake mix, pudding mix, coffee powder, bourbon, water, butter, applesauce, eggs, mixing until dry ingredients are wet.
  2. Scrape bowl & beaters, and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees in greased, floured bundt pan for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean, letting cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  4. Invert on cake rack over a plate large enough to fully cover the bottom of the cake, then remove pan.
  5. For glaze, combine powdered sugar and corn syrup in a medium bowl, stir together adding enough cream (1/2-n-1/2 and/or milk) to make smooth and pourable, and pour glaze over cake.
  6. (Note: If the glaze is rather thin, repeat the last step as follows: Holding by the rack, move the cake & rack over to another plate large enough to fully cover the bottom. Pour the glaze from the first plate over the cake. Repeat as necessary to achieve a glaze of desired thickness.)
  7. Let set and dry before drizzling chocolate.
  8. Melt chocolate and stir until smooth, then place in the bottom corner of a disposable plastic baggie.
  9. Make a very small cut in the corner of the bag, to allow a thin line of chocolate.
  10. Drizzle back and forth over top of one side of cake, rotating to cover all sides of cake .
  11. Glaze should set in about 30 minutes or so.

When I use fruit in baking cakes and pies I always use what is in season cheaper and tastier! Enjoy!


Applesauce Walnut Cake W/ a touch of Rum

Applesauce Walnut Cake W/ a touch of Rum

For a special kick to this delicious cake, you can add a tablespoon (or two) of Rum extract. For the topping: Mix 1/4 stick of butter, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, one Tbsp of water, 1/4 cup of crush walnut, mix together over medium heat in a small pan. Then pour topping over finish cake. You may want to pinch with a knife in a few places so the glaze will penetrate into the cake. Finish off with a light sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Wow, The cake goes from great to superb!
