Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

A friend at work gifted me some old baking supplies she didn’t need anymore, one of which was a bundt cake pan, and I was especially excited because I’d been dreaming about this cake I’d made when I was younger that required a bundt cake pan. Okay, maybe it didn’t actually require it, but it’s better that way. 😉

 

So, behold, Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake! Rich and dense, but not too sweet. This is one super yummy cake!

Ingredients:

 

  • cups + 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 1/2 cups grated zucchini (squeeze dry in a towel)
  • 2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 5 tbsp corn syrup
  • 3 tsp water

 

Directions:

 

Mix 2 cups of flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.

 

In another bowl, beat sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla together. Add yogurt and beat until well blended. Add dry ingredients and beat until just combined.

 

Coat 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips with 2 tbsp flour and fold into batter with zucchini.

 

Grease and flour bundt pan before filling with batter. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.

 

While cake is cooling on a wire rack, mix 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup in a small saucepan on low. Stir until melted, then add 1/2 tsp’s of water until the consistency is thin enough to drizzle over cake. You can spoon over the cake or fill a baggie and cut the tip to pipe it over the cake.
