Chocolate Cake with Zucchini n Walnuts
Yes you read it correct. Chocolate cake made using vegetable.
Oh I simply love this idea. Healthy and delicious. Kids enjoyed veg without any fuss and I enjoyed chocolate without any guilt. :P after all Iam eating healthy right!! ;)
Tried and Tested using idea from Here making little changes by adding walnuts and choco chips. :)
- 1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 heaping cups peeled, shredded zucchini
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Chopped walnuts 1/2 cup
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 9 x 13 baking dish by applying butter. In a large bowl whisk together oil, sugar, vanilla, egg, and milk. Fold in zucchini. In a small bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts.
Pour into prepared pan, and bake 25-30 minutes, or until the cake begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Let cool completely and cut in pieces.
