Wow, this apple walnut and chocolate cake was a killer. I gave away a few slices to the neighbors, and they gave me rave reviews back. The cake was so moist by using chunks of fresh apples and applesauce, walnuts and chocolate chips absolutely brought more goodness and deliciousness. When you bite into it, you can feel chunks of fresh apples, walnuts and melting chocolate. Hmmm, this is an ultimately delicious cake. If you haven't tried it, don't miss it...
