  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease and lightly flour bottom only of 13x9-inch pan.
  • 2
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave condensed milk and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips uncovered on Medium (50%) about 1 minute or until chocolate is softened; stir until smooth, and set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat dry cake mix and oil with electric mixer on low speed about 15 seconds or until crumbly; reserve 3/4 cup. Add applesauce and eggs to remaining mixture; beat on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl occasionally (batter will be thick and grainy). Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Spread batter in pan.

    Drop melted chocolate mixture by teaspoonfuls over batter, dropping more around edge than in centre. Stir remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and the pecans into reserved cake mixture; crumble over batter.

    Bake 37 to 43 minutes or until centre is set. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Store covered.
