For the month of January, we have been trying to post all healthy recipes, and it has been killing me.
I like to eat healthy, but I also need my desserts. All I wanted was chocolate cake this week, and I couldn’t put off my craving any longer.
My family wanted a treat last night, and I wasn’t about to deprive them.
So I took my favorite chocolate sheet cake recipe and adapted it to be a *little* more healthy. Moderation in all things, right?
It was amazing. It was even better with the zucchini in it. It made it so moist and delicious. You are going to love this recipe.
And I promise you can’t taste the zucchini.
Can I use frozen zucchini for this recipe?
Frozen zucchini is convenient, however, for this recipe, we highly discourage it.
The consistency will be a little different and could made your cake soggy or dry, depending on the zucchini.
We recommend using fresh zucchini. Also if there is dripping water, let it drip onto a paper towel, but for the most part, let the zucchini keep it’s moisture.
You don’t need to drain it, or squeeze any of the moisture out.
What is the best way to store Zucchini Cake?
If you are making this a day in advance, we recommend placing it in the fridge so it doesn’t dry out, and it stays fresh.
We don’t recommend making it more than a day in advance. It is best when served the day it is made.
If you have leftovers, you don’t necessarily have to refrigerate them, but the frosting will sink into the cake a little bit.
It will still be delicious and moist. I almost prefer the frosting to seep into the cake, because it has a delicious flavor and texture.
But you could also refrigerate it to slow down the frosting from seeping into the cake.
