Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Cake Recipe

In this triple chocolate zucchini cake, I used dark chopped chocolate, unsweetened chocolate chips and unsweetened cocoa powder, such a dense chocolate cake. If you never tasted a chocolate cake with vegetables before, here is your chance, make this chocolate zucchini cake in which you will not see or taste the zucchini and will enjoy a pleasant chocolaty taste. It’s a really delicious must-try cake!.

How To Make This Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Cake

How To Make the recipe step by step

Preparing the oven: Preheat the oven at 170C.

Making the cake: In a bowl, mix the eggs and vanilla extract using the electric hand mixer. Then add the sugar and butter and keep whisking.

After that, add the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder then continue whisking.

Finally, add the grated zucchini and chopped chocolate then mix using a spatula or wooden spoon. A very thick batter will form, don’t worry.

Preparing the cake pan: line a 22 cm cake pan with parchment paper and grease the sides with butter. Then pour the batter in the pan.

Baking: Bake the cake for 50- 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake, comes clean.

Tips:

  1. You don’t need to squeeze the liquid from the zucchini as it is useful in making the cake moist.
  2. I like to peel the zucchini before using it in desserts, but that is optional if you don’t peel it won’t affect the outcome.
