The original recipe called this “Bread.” Let’s be serious guys—this ain’t bread. Bread is lovely but it tries to behave itself. This little number is moist, chocolaty and positively wicked–with no shame whatsoever.

Cake I tell you…cake.

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups softened butter
3 cups grated zucchini
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the eggs and butter, mix well. Fold in the chips and zucchini until they are evenly distributed. Pour into the prepared pan.
3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool cake completely before frosting with your favorite frosting.

Now then—tell me again. How many servings of veggies are we suppose to have each and every day? I want to be sure to get them all in.

Heh, heh, heh.

  1. You forgot to mention the part about this NOT tasting anything like cake with vegetables in it!

    Oh, and I thought it was bread… was it really supposed to be cake and I was just pretending it was cake… or does it just taste like cake?!? Meh. Who cares. It’s yummy! 🙂
