Chocolate Zucchini Cakes

 The Cake Slice bakers are just around the corner from selecting our new baking book for the season. Next month we get to bake any recipe we choose to end the season.

This month we had four wonderful selections to choose from. Our selections this month included Baby Sweet Potato Cakes, Caramel Coconut Cake, Black Forest Pound Cake. 

The batter to this point was incredibly delicious! 

I chose this delicious Chocolate Zucchini Cake. A first for me. 

I did make a slight change to the recipe, due to ingredients on hand. I omitted the chopped chocolate, and made changes to the cocoa powder, using 3/4 cup special dark cocoa, and 1/4 cup regular cocoa powder. 

  The chocolate flavor came through just lovely. I knew the dark cocoa would do the trick.

Loved how dense the cake turned out. It was super moist and the chocolate was flavor was perfect! No icing was needed to bring this cake to the next level, it was perfect! For the recipe please visit Southern Living.

This looks like a wonderful snacking cake Anabel, I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

That looks delicious! I love zucchini bread, but have never made a zucchini cake. Plus chocolate never hurt anything!

I agree, Anabel, this cake really doesn't need frosting...or the chopped chocolate. That special dark cocoa clearly make it super dark and chocolaty. Yum!

Your zucchini cake turned out really well! Love that height and the twists you made!

I love using dark chocolate cocoa whenever I can also. All that I would want along side a nice size piece of this cake is a hot cup of tea. Beautiful cake!
