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.
Step 5: Add the shredded zucchini to the eggs. Mix.
Step 6: Add the melted chocolate. Mix until uniform in consistency.
Step 7: Add the flour, the baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Mix.
Step 8: Pour the mixture in a buttered Cake Pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
Optional: Sprinkle with Unsweetened Shredded Coconut for decoration.
You won’t believe how good it tastes! It is a delicious moist chocolate cake! You would never guess it contains zucchini!
