  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup Aketta flour

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened

  • 1 tsp espresso powder

  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

  • 1.5 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 cup boiling water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two nine-inch round pans.

In a large bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, Aketta flour, sugar, cocoa, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well-incorporated.

Add the eggs, milk, applesauce and vanilla, mix at medium speed until batter is thick and gooey, about 2-3 minutes. Lastly, stir in the boiling water. Batter should be thin. Pour evenly into the prepared pans.

Bake 35-40 minutes. Test cakes by inserting a toothpick into the center and seeing if it comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 15 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

If desired, ice with your favorite frosting and top with strawberries.
