Rocky Road Apple Chocolate Coffee Cake

This easy, spur-of-the-moment cake comes together in no time and is made from simple ingredients that dance together perfectly. Crisp, firm apples, and bittersweet chocolate, all chopped, are stirred into an egg-based batter, giving you a hefty cake that stays moist and can be stored, tightly wrapped, for a few days. You can bake it for a potluck, both for kids and adults, or just enjoy it with your afternoon cup of tea or coffee. 

O

  1. Serves 8–10
  2. 5 eggs
  3. 1½ cups packed brown sugar
  4. 1 cup olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon for the baking pan
  5. 2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
  6. 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 3½ ounces dark chocolate (about one chocolate bar)
  9. 4 cups firm, peeled apples cut into ½-inch cubes (about 2 large or 3 medium apples)

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and brush a rimmed, 9x13-inch baking pan with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.

2

In a large bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the sugar. Stir in the oil and add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, walnuts, chocolate and apples. Mix until combined.

3

Pour the batter into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake in the oven until a knife or cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 35–40 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan, and then slice. The cake will keep in a cool place, tightly wrapped, for up to 3 days.

Tip

You can add 3/4 cup chopped walnuts to the batter in step 2
