Chocolate Zucchini cake

I had 2 zucchini picked from my garden that I needed to use.  I had been searching for something good to  do with zuchinni.  The stuffed zucchini I made earlier was good but I wanted to try something different.  I found a recipe for chocolate zucchini cake and modified it some. I posted this picture on facebook and immediately got requests for my recipe.  Below is the recipe I used and OH is it good!!!!

I made a "small" cake.
1 c. flour
1 c sugar
1/4c + 2 T cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Mix dry ingredients together
Add 2 eggs
3/4 c applesauce (you can use oil instead if you want)
1 1/2 c grated zucchini ( i pureed mine)
and 1/2 or more chocolate chips
cook @ 350 for 45-50 min
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and eat :)

Its so moist and chocolatey!  In my opinion the chocolate chips are key and I am glad I pureed my zucchini as I am not sure about the texture of grated zucchini in a cake.  
I am taking the rest of the cake to work otherwise I'd eat the whole thing this weekend!


  1. Don't share with them! Send it to me!
    Sometimes, I hate living so damn far away
    from friends. ARGH!

  2. Success, took it to work, its gone and left people wanting more. Now to bring the recipe in on Monday.
