Getting more out of the sweets we eat: Chocolate Zucchini Cake

OneJayneDoe | Jan 12, 2007 07:22 PM

On another topic on the General Topics Board, it was suggested that if you're interested in getting your meat and potatoes man to eat more vegetables, an easy solution is to "hide" veggies in everyday foods we love to eat. This lead to the discussion of chocolate zucchini cake.
Here is a recipe for the cake.

Zucchini Chocolate Cake

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cocoa
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups zucchini -- grated
1 cup nuts -- chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated orange peel

Sift together the first 7 ingredients and set aside. Beat together the eggs, sugar and oil. Add buttermilk, zucchini, vanilla and orange peel
and mix. Add flour mixture and nuts. Bake in 9" x 13" greased and floured pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees. Frost with cream
cheese frosting.
