Chocolate zucchini cake
I’m not obsessed with hidden vegetables, but that doesn’t mean I don’t sometimes hide them and see if anyone notices! If your family loves chocolate cakes, this version uses up in-season zucchinis and stays super moist with minimal oil because the zukes add a lot of liquid. I love the lack of mucking about because unlike a fritter recipe you don’t have to drain and dry the zucchini before use. I find loaf tins are great for cakes because you can cut even slices more easily and wrap them up much more efficiently for storage. However, any kind of tin will work so use what you have handy - even cupcake pans.
