“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.” - by Carol
Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch tube cake
- Soak raisins in boiling water to cover for 5 minutes. Drain.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa; set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then the applesauce. Beat the flour mixture into the applesauce mixture. Stir in the raisins and walnuts. Turn batter into prepared pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Chill in refrigerator.

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