CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI CAKE . with REAL whipping cream.

Updated: Nov 26, 2021



A cake you can make even if you are not a baker..

because we definitely are not super talented bakers, so you got this one!


Best part, the ingredients are wholesome- so I feel pretty full-of-smiles when I eat a giant slice.


Cream these ingredients together:

  • 3/4 cup butter

  • 2 cups cane sugar

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 tbsp real vanilla extract

  • 2 tsp fresh orange zest

Add:

  • 1/2 cup whole milk or whole milk yogurt

  • 2 1/2 grated zucchini

Next sift these ingredients together, and then fold them into the creamed mixture:

  • 2 1/2 cup unbleached baking flour

  • 1/2 fair-trade cacao powder

  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp sea salt

Pour into a springform pan and bake at 350F for 45 minutes-1 hour until the toothpick pulls clear.



For real whipping cream:

  • Get 35% whipping cream- ideally chose from pasture raised/grass-fed cows for the best nutrition, eco-impact and happiest cows.

  • Pour into a wide mouthed cup.

  • Dust with cane sugar.

  • Get a electronic whisk, coffee frother or hand blender. Whisk until it thickens and foams up.

  • Top your giant slice of cake and enjoy!

This cake can be sliced and frozen nicely for preservation.


Also tastes great topped with ICE CREAM!
