Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Written by COA Nutrition Team On July 19, 2018

The kids will never know there are vegetables in this cake! Moist, chocolatey and super EASY to bake!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 cups grated zucchini

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch-baking pan or a bunt baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl mix well the eggs, oil and vanilla.
  4. Add the eggs and oil mix to the dry ingredients.
  5. Fold in zucchini until it’s evenly distributed.
  6. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. If you desire, cover the cake with chocolate icing after it’s cool.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Use Your Oven”

Hands-off meals are the best! It seems everyone thinks a quick meal is stir-fry and, yes, while stir-fry is “easy”, it means you have to stand over the stove making sure nothing burns. (Plus, you have to carefully plan which vegetables are added at what time so they all cook evenly. Hardly a beginner’s dish!)

Cooking food in the oven is a “set it and forget it” operation. Simply prep your ingredients, season, place in a baking pan and go lounge or play a game with the kiddos!
