A cocoa laced cake packed with chocolate goodness and covered in a tangy sour cream frosting. Not to mention zucchini. Shredded zucchini adds incredible moistness and body to the cake making it dense but not heavy.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think zucchini cake could taste so heavenly good! You may think it sounds odd if you’ve never experienced it before but trust me when I say it’s not. It’s exactly like inserting applesauce or banana into your baking.
The zucchini completely disappears into the batter. Not one single trace can be detected in the finished product making it perfect for feeding to unsuspecting kids and family members.
You know the ones I’m talking about. The certified vegetable haters, the ones who kick and scream when the smallest piece of vegetable is set in front of them.
When you wrap chocolate and sugar around zucchini no one can resist it’s lure.
Especially when that pertinent piece of information is kept from them.
I don’t normally condone this kind of behavior but if it gets people to eat their veggies than I plead the fifth!
P.S. Just between you and I, my family still isn’t aware there’s zucchini in this cake. It’ll be our little secret. Tee-hee.
