Chocolate Apple Cake

peanut sprinkled doughnut placed on round white ceramic saucer

I tend to have a lot of apples all at once and the kids have a *habit* of getting bored with my go to apple recipes. I don’t why I didn’t think of mixing chocolate and apples in cake form before but I had the bright idea one day and I am glad I finally thought of this combination. I found this recipe from Beyond the Chicken Coop, adapted it, and it has now been consumed multiple times by said bored kids.


  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of apple fresh cider or water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups grated tart apples (about 2 apples)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Cream together eggs, sugar, butter, water, and vanilla.
  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice and salt in a separate bowl. (OR if you’re like me, you just add it all to the wet mixture, one less dirty bowl.)
  • Add dry mixture to creamed mixture.
  • Fold in walnuts, chocolate chips, and apples. (I just grate the apple over the bowl)
  • Place into a bundt pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray and dusted with flour.
  • Bake at 350 for 60 – 70 minutes.
  • Allow cake to cool before removing from pan.
