I’d heard rumours about chocolate cake or muffins which had zucchini in them and that the vegetable gave the dough a lovely texture. I decided to give it a go myself by substituting it into an easy chocolate cake recipe. I did a little bit of research first. You are advised to drain the zucchini after grating it for the best results. I did this and also pressed on it with paper towel. You are also supposed to add it as the final ingredient for it to work its best magic. It certainly seemed to work. The cake rose very well and had a bouncy texture.
Long ago I had also heard about an acquaintance making a cake with avocado frosting. At the time I had been dubious but I decided to give this a try as well. Again, I was pleasantly surprised. Even with the double whammy of healthy goodness, you can absolutely have this cake and eat it too. And with a lot less guilt than usual!
