Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I´m a big fan of vegetables in cakes. The resulting texture and taste is great and the added nutrient boost is a great bonus.

DD loves chocolate so I thought I´d give this cake a try. The original recipe can be found here.


1 cup grated zucchini (peeled)

1/2 cup olive oil

1 cup flour (I used a gluten-free mix)

2/3 cup sugar (I used a bit less)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 heaped tablespoons cocoa


Peel and grate the zucchini (use a fine grater) and mix with olive oil. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingedients well. Slowly mix dry ingredients into zucchini mix. Mix well. The result is a very thick batter.

Spoon into a greased tin (10 x 25 cm) and bake at 180 degrees C for 30-35 minutes.

Frost to taste. I like it plain or with a little margarine.

DDs approval

She liked it but isn´t much into chocolate cake, prefered feeding it to her dolls and teddies. No problem – more for me!
