Sneaky Mommy's Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Rated as 3.33 out of 5 Stars

"I've taken my old chocolate zucchini cake recipe, cut out almost all of the bad stuff and loaded it up with so many fruits and vegetables that it's more like a baked salad than a cake. The funny thing is that it turned out so moist and tasty that you'll find yourself fighting with the kids for the last piece. Try it once and you'll be a believer too!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and cloves in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat together the eggs, sugar, applesauce, vegetable oil, apple juice concentrate, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in the dry mixture alternately with the milk, then add the zucchini, carrot, raisins, and dates; stir until just moistened. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack.

This turned into a sliceable FUDGE PUDDING CAKE (!) by a happy accident of using only 1-1/2 C. flour (instead of 2-1/2). Also two substitutions: (a) buttermilk instead of the unavailable apple j...

Made muffins instead but LOVE this recipe! I didn't have all the ingredients so tweeked - but that's the fun of cooking! Used sucanat instead of sugar, skipped most of the milk (maybe used 2 TBL...

Yummy and healthy. Four stars because it definitely needed chocolate chips. As is, the level of chocolate isn't strong enough for my liking. As for alterations, I left out the juice concentrate...

This had too much fruit, and not enough chocolate flavor. If I made it again I would add chocolate chips and omit some of the fruit. Unfortunately, I don't see myself trying to make another ve...
