Making the cake

Mom­my Tip: if your goal is to get your kids to eat zuc­chi­ni with­out them even notic­ing it, make sure your kids do not see you put the zuc­chi­ni in the cake. (If you are look­ing for oth­er recipes to get your kids to eat veg­eta­bles, I rec­om­mend this cook­book: Decep­tive­ly Deli­cious: Sim­ple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eat­ing Good Food.)

Step 1: Pre­heat oven to 350 degrees Fahren­heit.

Step 2: Melt the choco­late. (To melt it, you can just put it in the microwave with a table­spoon of water for about 1 minute and 30 sec­onds).

Step 3: In a bowl, whisk the eggs, and add the table­spoon of sweet­en­er.
