Recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Cake
March 28, 2013
The Easter Bunny skips past our home, leaving just a few little things (mostly non chocolate) for the boys. Easter is a time where I put my apron on and do as much cooking as possible.
Mr Fresh is home and the boys are super excited to be spending extra time with their dad. This year Mr Fresh’s gorgeous sister is also visiting from interstate.
Do you have visitors over the Easter break?
If so, this is a great recipe to bake if you would like to give your guests the feeling of Easter with a healthier bent. I used raw cocao powder in the cake. Raw cocao powder is full of health benefits. It is a powerful antioxidant and a great source of magnesium, it is also said to contains vitamins A,B,C, D and E. It is commonly available from health food stores and some good delis. You can read more about some of the properties and benefits here.
I also like this recipe as a baked treat for Punky’s school lunch as it is not high in sugar and you can add almost any vegetables into it.
I have made numerous variations of this recipe over the previous weeks. You can pretty much add what ever you have in the crisper and pantry to it. I will list some of the variations that we enjoyed after the main recipe to get you started with some ideas.
Have a beautiful Easter, travel safely if you are in transit over this period.

*The beautiful bunny was snapped at the Flower Dispensary in Newtown, Victoria. Drop in if you are in the area. I love to wander in there looking at a wide array of treasures.
