Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Add another dimension to chocolate cake with summer's favorite vegetable.
Why This Recipe Works
To expel excess moisture and ensure our Chocolate Zucchini Cake didn’t turn out a soggy mess, we grated zucchini on a box grater, then wrung it out in a clean dish towel. We found we could also shred and freeze the zucchini in recipe-ready portions as long as we thawed and strained it before mixing it into the batter.
We used the creaming method to develop structure and height in the cake: Beat the fats and sugar together before adding the wet and dry ingredients. Combining baking soda with baking powder provided adequate lift.
