Savor Dakota: Chocolate Zucchini Cake Recipe
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
by Julie Garreau
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking power
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon (adjust according to taste...I like cinnamon)
1 1/2 vegetable oil
3 cups grated zucchini
Note: If you use frozen zucchini, squeeze some of the water out. If its freshly grated then use as is.
• You may add 1/2 C. chocolate chips to the batter.
• You may replace the vegetable oil with the same measurement of applesauce. It changes the taste a bit, but is yummy, healthier and still moist.
Pre heat 350 degrees
Grease and flour the baking pan.
Mix all of the ingredients together.
Bake 50-60 minutes in the oven until the knife inserted comes out clean.
Make a chokecherry syrup and pour it on top.
