Do you get excited for certain ingredients at certain times of the year? I know right now we are quickly headed toward fall, and everyone is getting ready for pumpkin and apple all day long. I’ll admit that I’ve already stocked up on a few cans of pumpkin because I’m ready to do some pumpkin baking very soon.
But during the later summer months, I get excited for a different veggie to use in my baking. I know I should enjoy zucchini as a veggie more often, but I seriously love baking it into my chocolate goods. It gives them such an awesome texture and taste! This dark chocolate zucchini cake and this dark chocolate zucchini bread were two of my favorite ways to “eat my greens”.
I say they were my favorite because this decadent cake staring back at you jumped into the number one zucchini recipe spot. For now anyway. I reserve the right to change my mind as soon as I bake another chocolate zucchini dessert because that’s just what I do.
A few weeks ago I headed to the grocery store because I was craving more chocolate covered zucchini. Since my bundt pan has been feeling neglected, I decided to use the veggie to make an over the top chocolate cake.
Using thee kinds of chocolate made this the most decadent, most amazing, and most delicious cake ever. You can see why I had to call it the ultimate, right?
Dark chocolate cocoa powder in the batter gives it the dark rich color. Mini chocolate chips in the batter and on top add little pockets of chocolate goodness inside and out. And then the chocolate glaze rolling over the sides of the cake will have you swooning. Spooning that chocolate over the top was difficult because all I wanted to do was pour it into my mouth.
The three cups of shredded zucchini inside the cake gives you a good reason to call this dessert a veggie. A slice of this cake can totally count as part of your daily greens. Wink, wink!
Yes, I realize my logic on greens and chocolate is slightly skewed. It’s why my shorts and I have an epic battle every summer. But we will have to continue fighting because I’m not giving up my chocolate covered zucchini any time soon.
So, would you be able to resist this ultimate chocolate zucchini bundt cake if it was sitting on your counter? I sure didn’t.
