Chocolate Cake with Zucchini and Walnuts
Cake with Zucchini...???
Yes, you read it correctly. 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 I am eating healthy right!! ;)
Tried and Tested using an 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.
