Zucchini Cake

27 Jul

“Zucchini cake. Those two words should never be next to each other.” This is the text I received from my bf approximately three hours before he ate a substantial portion of this cake. It’s a sleeper – some of my family members said it was the best thing I’ve ever baked. Wowza. It was extremely easy and only requires one bowl. I even mixed by hand…with a spoon! I’ve been having trouble using all of the veggies I get every week from my CSA, and decided to start baking with them. This is the first in my “veggie fabulous” baking series.

Zucchini Cake
Serves about 16/adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • dulce de leche and powdered sugar to top

Here’s what I did:

  1. Mix together eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini and vanilla in a large bowl.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  5. Cool and top with dulce de leche and sugar – yum!
