Today we are celebrating the birthday of Soul Food Saturday. That’s right. One year ago, (April 27, 2013) I shared the first recipe with you, and haven’t looked back. Along with Mrs. Everyday by my side we've celebrated, shared memories, and toasted along the way. So I wanted to celebrate our first big milestone with a quick dessert you're going to love. So, let's toast SFS and to another yummy year!
Cinnamon Apple Chocolate Cake in a Flash!
1 box devils food cake mix
1¼ c. water
½ c. unsweetened apple sauce
½ tbs. ground cinnamon
Butter spray for pans
In a large bowl add cake mix, apple sauce, water, cinnamon and eggs. With an electric mixer beat on low for 30 seconds to combine, and then a few minutes to get everything completely incorporated. Batter will be lumpy. Coat two 9 inch pie plates with butter spray. Divide batter between both. Microwave on high power for 7 minutes, test with toothpick for doneness.
Remove from the microwave. Allow to cool on a rack before adding topping. Repeat with 2nd pie pan.
Chocolate Whipped Topping
1 tub whipped topping
2 tbs. cocoa powder
1 tsp Vanilla
In a medium bowl add whipped topping, cocoa and vanilla. Mix until combined.
*Note: We enjoyed the sweetness that the whipped topping already had without adding additional sugar. If you prefer sweeter whipped topping, add powdered sugar by the teaspoon until desired sweetness is acquired.
Our favorite way to enjoy this cake is warm, minutes from being done. Top with whipped topping and your favorite fruit. We love strawberries so that’s how we enjoyed it here.
