Tanni made two desserts in the Gilmore Community Kitchen. She made a Zucchini Chocolate Cake and Loh Mei Chi. The Zucchini Chocolate Cake is best served after two or three days. A great dessert that you can prepare in advance.
What I liked of this recipe is that you can hardly detect the zucchini in the cake. It’s a great way to add vegetables into fussy kids diet without them knowing it. This will certainly be my secret weapon and I hope Arkensen and Nanzaro will not read this blog.
You may garnish the cake with a dust of icing sugar or with some cut fruits along with it.
- 1 cup of shredded zucchini (do not substitute with cucumber)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or other flavour extract)
- 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
You may double the recipe but doubling all the ingredients except the vegetable oil to 3/4 cup and the egg to 3.
