It’s zucchini season, meaning it’s the perfect time to bake up the easiest gluten free and vegan triple chocolate zucchini cake EVER. Or bread. Or muffin. This recipe is incredibly versatile and simple! Plus it a real triple threat of chocolate: cocoa, dark choco chunks and a dark chocolate drizzle- does it get any better? Let’s get baking!
The Easiest Triple Chocolate Zucchini Cake (or loaf)!
As much as I love carrot in our Twelve Karat Cake Premium Baking Mix, my favourite fruit to put in the cake is actually ZUCCHINI! Zucchini in cooking and baking is such a versatile plant: its good savoury or sweet! It's soft, mild flavour adds a ton of moisture to cakes and loaves, and this gluten free and vegan bundt cake is no exception.
And since you can never have too much chocolate (right?), we decided to make this cake a TRIPLE THREAT. Chocolate cake batter, chocolate chunks throughout and a chocolate drizzle on top.
Chocolate. Zucchini. Bundt. Cake.
Delicious. Moist. Beautiful. Treat.
As usual, this recipe is incredibly simple to put together. All it really is is swapping out carrot for zucchini in our classic carrot cake, adding in all the chocolate and baking it in a unique pan. The extra ginger and cinnamon spices from the baking mix really add another flavour profile to the cake which is quite delightful. Plus technically you're eating a fruit.... making this cake slightly more healthy??
