The perfect mix between chocolate cake and zucchini. If you have a lot of zucchini laying around, this is what you need to make.
The zucchini in this chocolate cake, really does make it so moist.
I decided to put this to the test. I made this Chocolate Zucchini Cake, and a regular chocolate cake. I had my husband close his eyes and eat each one.
I kid you not, he said the Chocolate Zucchini Cake was the BEST cake he has ever eaten. He agreed that it was way more moist, and even had a richer flavor.
So there you have it, zucchini is the secret ingredient to making a moist and delicious cake.
This recipe is so simple, and if you have a lot of zucchini at this time of year, like me, you need to put them to use, and make some of this delicious cake.
could i make this without a bundt pan
The recipe calls for this cake to be baked in a bundt pan, however, not everyone has a bundt pan. This recipe could easily by made in a 9×9 inch or 9×13 inch pan, and taste just as good.
I would recommend keeping the cooking time the same, but checking on it more frequently.
I have personally never made this recipe using a glass baking pan, but I bake all my other cakes in pans, and this batter has the same consistency.
When it is done baking, let it completely cool, before spreading on the frosting. You could also keep it in the pan and frost it.
We take the bundt cake out of the pan, but if you are cooking in a rectangle or square pan, we recommend keeping it in the pan and serving from it, to avoid it breaking or crumbling when trying to remove it.
what is the best way to shred zucchini
I have found the best way to shred zucchini depends on your preference, but I prefer mine extremely thin, that I won’t have zucchini chunks or strands.
I have found the best way to do this, is by placing my zucchini (cut into 2 inch chunks) into my food processor, and blending it until I have reached my desired consistency.
I wouldn’t blend it until it has become a liquid substance like a smoothie, but just until it isn’t in large chunks.
You could also use your potato peeler, or cheese grater, to create small and fine pieces of zucchini, for your cake.
