  • Love a sneaky vegetable

    Submitted by Nate's Mum on 19. December 2015 - 10:53.

    Love a sneaky vegetable recipe. Really lovely texture and very chocolatey. I also just left the zucchini in the bowl and skipped step one, added vanilla instead of the spices. Will be making again, thank you! tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by BeautyFoodie on 5. July 2015 - 12:16.

    This is a great cake. Its a good way to use up the excess Zucchinis from the garden. Also great as cupcakes for school lunch boxes.

    I dont remeove Zucchini in step 1. I just leave in the bowl while I go ahead with the other steps. And I dont add coffee.

    Thanks for a great recipe! tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Great birthday cake!  I blitz

    Submitted by nellanuts on 24. June 2015 - 18:17.

    Great birthday cake! 

    I blitz the zucchini twice and leave in bowl like others do.  I omit the coffee and use milk.  I made this for a 9 year old birthday cake and everyone raved about it.  This is one of my "go to" cakes.  Love it.

  • Brilliant moist cake - made

    Submitted by nellanuts on 5. February 2015 - 12:11.

    Brilliant moist cake - made it for my son's birthday cake - disco cake.  Hidden goodness in every bite!  I used a teaspoon of cinnamon instead of mixed spice and works a treat.  Definitely going on the favourite list - even the most fussiest of eaters thought it was awesome.  Thanks for this easy no fuss cake.

    Submitted by kaishra on 21. June 2014 - 21:20.

    This cake is awesome, super easy to make and looks and tastes great. I didn't take the zucchini out after step 1 either and the kids had absolutely no idea that there was any in it. After school holidays I'll be making it again and baking it in cupcake size so the kids can take it to school (they requested it tmrc_emoticons.D)

  • Ok , so it turns out , I

    Submitted by Avatheravor on 11. May 2012 - 00:59.

    Ok , so it turns out , I missed the " remove and set aside " bit on the first part of the instruction ! So I happily chopped away my  zucchinies and left them in the thermomix jug . It turned out to be a bonus though because there was absolutely no sign of anything" green " in the finished product I also omitted the spice and didn't replace i with anything t  ! I  would do it exactly the same next time !  I sprinkled mini m& m on top of the batter before for putting it in the oven . Thanks for the recepie x 

    Dear Lord,  So far today,  I haven't gossiped, lost my temper, been grumpy, nasty or selfish. I haven't whinged or eaten any chocolate! However,I'm going to get out of bed in a few minutes & I'll need a lot more help after that! Amen

  • Fantastic, zucchinis were

    Submitted by kaishra on 1. May 2012 - 01:55.

    Fantastic, zucchinis were cheap last week so I bought 3kgs, then had to go looking for recipes to use them up tmrc_emoticons.) This fit the bill perfectly, all 5 of my kids scoffed theirs down as did hubby and there's still the other 1/2 for dessert tomorrow night, only cause i wouldn't let the kids eat the entire cake in one sitting lol. They were a bit impressed that they got extra serves of vegies without knowing.  I'm going to make it again tomorrow (still got loads of zucchinis) and do it in muffin tins for school.

    Thanks

    Submitted by adrianne on 10. March 2012 - 15:20.

    I use a 23cm round tin. I'm sure you could use a square tin or even muffin tins and just adjust the oven time. first check with a skewer to see if the cake is cooked before removing from the oven.

  • Great way to use up excess

    Great way to use up excess zucchinis. One of my kids found the spice component not to their liking, but the other 2 loved it!

    This one was a real winner for my family. We had home grown zucchini to use up and my children didn't even know the cake had zucchini in it. Thank you Adrianne for sharing your recipe Big Smile

    You can swap the coffee for milk for children or leave it out all together. The Zucchini makes it a very moist cake.
