Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Melt together over low heat so the mixture isn’t overly hot and doesn’t cook the eggs when blending it all together.

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1+1/2 c. Hershey’s milk chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, whip together

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 + 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 c. oil

If the chocolate mixture is too hot, temper with 1/2 c. Heavy cream. Else, blend the 1/2 c. cream with the eggs, then add the chocolate mixture.

In a bowl, sift together, then blend with the liquid part.

  • 2 + 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. Hershey’s 100% cacao cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt

Then fold in 2 c. grated zucchini.

Pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan, and bake at 350 for 40-48 minutes (I think it was that long…:scream_cat: …I forgot to solve for the cooking time). (Went back and looked at the recipe I modified and she has written 325 for 45 minutes. So I bet that time would work for this).

Modified this recipe from a friend on my imgur craft group. I was really hoping for a fudgy brownie, but meh, didn’t turn out that way. I think I really needed one more egg, 1/2 cup more chocolate chips, and 1/4 cup more of oil/butter. Pppp! Doesn’t matter, really, this is a really good chocolate cake…Really really good. :smiley: I give it an A++.

Optional: I’d add some dark black coffee to this, if I was allowed to, heh. Probably a teaspoon of instant coffee blended in with the chocolate mixture.


Looks yummy!

Yeah, I’d eat half of that without even blinking. It looks soo good! :grinning:


It looks delicious!

It looks amazing!! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Oooo! Yummy! Just in time for zucchini season, too!

Put it in the fridge and oh my word. The best description I can think of for it, a chocolate bar cake. oof! it is so darn good…and I’m not a big chocolate eater, :triumph:.

Another thing that struck me. A few years back my mom had given me a chocolate & lemon fruitcake. I bet this would be just as good as that was if made in the same way.

Your carefully angled photo makes me want to bite the screen.:smile: I have to stop looking now. Zucchini bread has become very popular too, hasn’t it? Thanks for sharing.

Hmm! :thinking:

Been using another recipe as the breads rise a lot better…The spiced ones are pretty good, but the chocolate one…Meh, not as good as the first one…I wonder why. O_o.

(makes two loaves)

Sift together

4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1+1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. hershey’s cocoa powder

Mix well together

4 eggs
3 c. sugar (I believe I cut out about 2/3’s of a cup)
1 Tbls. Vanilla (I ran out making the other four. So this one doesn’t have but half a teaspoon, :no_mouth:)
1+1/4 c. sunflower oil

Melt together (not letting them get too hot)

1/2 c. butter
11.5 oz bag of Hershey’s milk chocolate chips.

Mix chocolate and egg/sugar mixture together. spoon stir in the flour, then stir in

4 c. shredded zucchini

bake for 50-65 minutes at 350.

For spiced, leave out the chocolate, add 3/4 cup oil,

Mix in three teaspoons of cinnamon.

Or instead of all cinnamon 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ground clove, and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg.

Anyway, will have to see how it goes after it cools in the fridge tonight.


Oh noooo! They weren’t fully cooked…the toothpick lied.

It’s much too late to fix them, too. :cry: Welp, partially a gooey brownie then.
