After-school chocolate snack cake

Makes 9 servings

I developed this recipe when my nephew, Josh, was going to be my helper on Dispatch Kitchen on 10TV. We made it on air together. It’s a great recipe to make with kids because it doesn’t require a mixer.

1 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon distilled vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Confectioners’ sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, stir the water, granulated sugar, brown sugar, applesauce, oil, vinegar and vanilla until smooth.

In another bowl, combine all-purpose flour, wheat flour, cocoa powder, soda and salt.

Add dry ingredients to applesauce mixture. Stir just until blended.

Pour batter into 8-inch square pan. Bake until center is just set, about 35 to 40 minutes. Cool. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
