"This is a bit of an unusual cake, but great for Christmas. The chocolate mixed with raisins, applesauce, and spices gives a nice texture with a lot less work than plum pudding itself."

Wow!!!! This is an incredibly moist, wonderful, chocolate cake! The spices, chocolate, and raisins work beautifully together. Don't wait for Christmas!

This consistently gets rave reviews, even from people who would turn their nose up at any kind of fruitcake. It has a great taste and a nice texture, without being tough. I've served it with Creme Anglaise, and I've also soaked it in liquor and brought it to the table aflame in Christmas pudding tradition! I usually use a mixture of golden and purple raisins, and I substitute pecans for the walnuts.

Fabulous Cake! It was absolutely wonderful. The only thing I won't do next time is flour the pan - with the generous amount of non-stick cooking spray I used, it wasn't necessary. Definitely a place in my home.
