Slightly Less Sinful: Zucchini Chocolate Cake

22 Jul

This chocolate loaf contains one whole zucchini, making it moist, and less unhealthy, right? This is based on an old coworker’s recipe (thank you, SK!)

Chocolate Loaf Cake

1) Beat together:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola or safflower oil
  • 1/4 cup milk

Beat well to aerate.

2) In a separate bowl, mix together:

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1.25 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Fold this mixture into the first bowl. Fold carefully to avoid breaking the air bubbles.

3) Fold in 1 cup grated zucchini (1 whole zucchini)

4) Fold in a large handful of chocolate chips (optional)

5) Bake in a greased loaf pan at 350 °F for about 35 minutes. Allow to cool before glazing.

 

Easy chocolate glaze

Heat 2 oz. coconut milk and mix in 2 oz. chopped chocolate (I used semisweet chocolate chips)

 

 

This cake is great the next few days too. Just warm it up a little, and enjoy.
