    I made this in a long tin so it was a chocolate slice, no icing just icing sugar, it tastes great and you cannot detect the vegetables. Thank you, it's a great recipe.

    I made this as a loaf last night and served warm.
    As I’d cut the sugar to 100gm I put chocolate chunks on the top.

    I cooked this cake in a tupperware stacker cooker in the microwave,place lid of stack cooker upside-down in microwave, line base container with paper towels(no need to grease dish) place greased bundt cone in middle, place cake ontop of upturned lid, cook in microwave 700 watt for 14 min, let cool slightly before turning out onto plate, then pull off paper towel, makes for easy cleanup of dish. Note you could use any microwave bundt dish.

    Submitted by thermanatrix on 5. February 2016 - 12:09.

    I made these last weekend and they turned out a lovely light fluffy but moist texture.  I used Coconut Oil instead of butter, GF Flour (and a little white spelt), Cacao instead of Cocoa and Rapadura Sugar instead of Brown Sugar.  Next time I will try using Coconut Milk instead of regular milk and Rice Malt Syrup instead of sugar.  They weren't overly sweet, and looked good in muffin papers.  My sons thought that I had bought them they looked so good!

    This is an awesome recipe the muffins turned out so moist.  I upped the cocoa by 5g to boast the chocolate abit & added all the sugar (I used 40g coconut sugar & 220g of brown).  Will definetly make this again especially because my picky son loves them without any icing so it's not a super sugar overload.  Thanks so much tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I tried this recipe exactly.

    Submitted by AnnLovegood on 24. June 2015 - 23:13.

    I tried this recipe exactly. I did not make the frosting, but I did drizzle some chocolate ganache over my slice. Pretty tasteless and the chocolate taste was overpowered by the zucchini in the cake. I would definitely increase 100g of sugar in the future though I don't think I'll be making this recipe again. Even my grandma, who always complains about my bakes being too sweet, said this cake was a little tasteless.

    Submitted by Tbug2cook on 17. May 2015 - 21:55.

    This was great, didn't have plain so just subbed self raising and left out bicarb/baking powder. Also only had half the brown sugar so topped it up with some regular sugar!! Tasted great no need for icing, moist and delicious!

    Submitted by ArwensThermoPics on 18. March 2014 - 12:08.

    It wasn't on fan forced, so if it's a cake you can either try cooking it for less at that temp or lower the temp & still cook for the hour, it's quite a big cake. hope this helps? tmrc_emoticons.)
