       Yield: 16 servings
       2 c  Unsifted Unbleached Flour
       2 tb Cocoa
   1 1/2 ts Baking Soda
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/2 c  Shortening
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
       2 lg Eggs
       2 ts Vanilla Extract
       2 c  Unsweetened Applesauce
       6 oz Semisweet Chocolate Chips
     1/2 c  Chopped Walnuts
   This is one of the first cakes that I made in the 1970’s.  There is
   no need to frost this one because it is sprinkled with chocolate
   chips and walnuts before baking.
   Yield: One 13 X 9-inch cake
   Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
   Cream the shortening and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until
   light and fluffy, using an electric mixer set on medium speed.  Add
   the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Blend in
   the vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredientss alternately with the
   applesauce to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition,
   using the mixer set on low speed.  Pour the batter into a greased 13
   X 9 X 2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and
   chopped walnuts. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 35
   minutes or until the cake test done. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
   Makes 16 servings for normal people or about 8 for chocoholics.
