Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Makes 1 9x13 pan


2 1/2 cups 625 mL white flour
1/4 cup 60 mL cocoa
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
1/2 tsp 2 mL baking powder
1/2 tsp 2 mL cinnamon
1/2 tsp 2 mL allspice
2 cups 500 mL grated zucchini
1 cup 250 mL vegetable oil
1 cup 250 mL white sugar
3 3 eggs
3/4 cup 180 mL chocolate chips
1/2 cup 125 mL sliced almonds


  1. Scrub the zucchinis thoroughly and chop about 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) off the ends. Grate them into a large measuring cup.
  2. Blend the rest of the wet ingredients in a large bowl with the hand blender.
  3. Separately, mix the dry ingredients together in another bowl.
  4. Stir the zucchinis and the "dry" mixture into "wet" mixture. It will be thick and sticky.
  5. Grease the 9x13 pan.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan.
  7. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and sliced almonds on top of the cake. You don't have to mix them together first.
  8. Bake at 350F (175C) for about 50 minutes. You should be able to stick a toothpick into the center and have it come out dry.
