  • 2 (4 ounce) containers applesauce

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • ¼ cup water

  • 1 fluid ounce coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®), or more to taste

  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup cocoa powder

Cook's Note:

Use 2 large eggs instead of the replacer if not vegan.
