Whenever I celebrate with a dessert, I always go for chocolate. I love a good chocolate zucchini cake, so my daughters and I got in the kitchen last week to create grain-free recipe for you.
In my mind, Chocolate Zucchini cake is basically an excuse to make a chocolate cake, add a vegetable, and be proud of yourself because you’re eating a vegetable for dessert. 🙂
When you make this cake, I want to warn you that the batter will be very thick, but the water from the zucchini will leach into the batter while baking to create a lovely, moist cake. I hope you enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust the rack to the middle position.
Place the almond flour, coconut flour, gelatin, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt in the bowl of a standing mixer . Using the beater attachment , mix on low for about 30 seconds until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, coconut oil, and vanilla. With the mixer on low, slowly add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture. Stir in the zucchini. At this point the batter will be very thick.
Spoon the batter into an oiled 8×8-inch glass baking dish and spread evenly in the pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached. Cool completely.
Place the coconut milk and butter in a small saucepan and heat until butter is melted. Place the chocolate chips and vanilla in a blender. Pour the hot milk mixture over the chocolate and let sit for 30 seconds. Blend until smooth. Pour the frosting into a medium bowl and chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour until thick.
Spoon the frosting over the cake and spread evenly. Serve.
