My kids had never had zucchini cake, so I decided to make one, but with chocolate.
OK, I know you've seen these recipes before and you're probably rolling your eyes - another zucchini cake recipe - blah, blah, blah - but this recipe is remarkably fudgy.
Yes, you read that right.
Fudgy. Moist and dark and delicious. So much so that I'm going to change the name right now to Fudgy Chocolate Zucchini Cake.
Fudgy Chocolate Zucchini Cake
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups white sugar
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup sour cream, yogurt or buttermilk
- 3/4 cup oil
- 3 cups grated zucchini [1 good sized zucchini]
- 1 cup chopped nuts
The kids loved this. We ate it for breakfast. With homemade whipped cream.
I'm thinking it would be so so good with dark chocolate icing. Or cream cheese icing. Or just with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
