I went looking for a "veggie cake" recipe & stumbled upon this fantastic recipe over at scandifoodie.blogspot.com. I have adapted it to make it nut free- so here's my version:
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
3-4 zucchini (about 250g grated)
450g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp mixed spice
225g brown sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 cup sultanas
125g melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 180C and grease a large cake tin (23 cm).
Squeeze out excess water of the zucchini by placing in a clean tea towel & squeezing. Sift the dry ingredients, except the sugar, into a bowl and add sultanas. Melt the chocolate in the microwave and set aside. Beat together the eggs, sugar and butter. Beat in chocolate and vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture and the milk & when combined, add the zucchini.
Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a a skewer comes out clean.
