2  c  Flour
1/3  c  Cocoa powder, unsweetened
1  t  Baking powder
1  t  Baking soda
2/3  c  Butter, softened
1 1/4  c  Sugar
2  lg  Eggs
1  t  Extract, vanilla
2/3  c  Milk
2  md  Apples, Granny Smith, peeled
    -cored, & finely chopped
3  c  Sugar
1/4  c  Butter, softened (1/2 stick)
1/4  c  Cocoa powder, unsweetened
1/3  c  Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8" square cake pan. Dust with flour; tap out excess. Mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat together butter and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. At low speed, alternately beat flour mixture and milk into butter mixture. Stir in apples. Pour into prepared pan. Bake cake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Turn cake out onto rack to cool completely. To prepare icing, beat together confectioners' sugar, butter, and cocoa powder at low speed. Beat in milk. Spread frosting over top and sides of cake. <Great American Home Baking 05-20> Baking Tips: To test if baking powder is still fresh, combine 1 teaspoon of it with 1/3 cup hot water. If the mixture bubbles vigorously, the powder is fine to use. McIntosh or Cortland apples can be substituted for the Granny Smith Apples. This cake can also be baked in a 9" round cake pan. Allow a few minutes less baking time. From: Margaret Young Date: 11-16-96 (08:30) Winquest Pc (199) Cooking
