Chocolate Cake with Zucchini n Walnuts

 Cake with Zucchini...???
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. :)


Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
  2. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  4. 1 large egg
  5. 1/2 cup milk
  6. 2 heaping cups peeled, shredded zucchini
  7. 1 cup all purpose flour
  8. 1 cup whole wheat flour
  9. 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  11. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  12. Chopped walnuts 1/2 cup
  13. 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Method:
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.
