Zucchini Chocolate Fudge Snack Cake


Servings: Makes a 9 in x 13 in pan.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

  • 1/2 cup butter (that's one stick; room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (12 oz by weight)
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 Tbsps cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (9 oz by weight)
  • 16 oz zucchini grated (about 4 cups loosely-packed)
  • 3/4 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (half a 12 oz bag)
  • 2 Tbsps vanilla sugar

  • Instructions: Preheat oven to 350F. In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar for a couple of minutes on medium speed. Add eggs and vanilla and continue beating for a couple more minutes, or until creamy-smooth. Add cinnamon, coffee, salt, baking soda, and cocoa; continue beating until integrated into the mix. Slowly add in flour. Once it's all in, stir in the grated zucchini. Pour the whole mess into a 9x13" casserole and top with nuts, chocolate chips & vanilla sugar. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.

    Notes: You'll need about a 1.5 lb zucchini with the pith and seeds removed to garner a processed pound of squash. If you're lacking vanilla sugar, plain ol' sugar is fine, or demerara is good too. Want more chocolate? Add a half cup of chips to the batter as well.
