You always need chocolate right??

Zucchini and Chia seed, Moist  Chocolate cake 

A chocolate cake with some added goodness.
After 3 years being a tagged on recipe on another post I have finally out this chocyliscious baby on a post all of her own! x

A beautiful, moist chocolate cake (with added goodness).
Most of us love a chocolate cake and if you are going to have a chocolate cake why not have one with some goodness inside!

Ingredients
  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or swap for stevia)
  • 1 tsp good vanilla
  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 cups zucchini finely grated
  • 4 free range eggs
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 3 cups gluten free self raising flour, OR 2 cups organic self raising flour OR wholemeal spelt with 2 teaspoons baking powder.
  • 1-2 cups whipped cream or whipped coconut cream for dairy free
  • jam (I use homemade or sugar free with stevia/fruit juice sweetener )
  • walnuts
  • fresh strawberries to serve
Method
  • Pre heat oven to 180`c
  • Grease and line with baking paper 2 x 20 cm cake tins
  • Gently melt chocolate and butter
  • Combine chocolate butter mixture in a bowl with the sugar
  • Add in vanilla essence, eggs
  • Mix in almond meal and flour, mix together well
  • Fold in zucchini and chia seeds
  • Pour mixture into lined tins
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until springs back when touched
  • Turn both cakes onto a wire rack to cool
  • Once cold place one cake onto a dish, spread with a generous layer of rosella conserve and then a layer of whipped cream and some sliced fresh strawberries
  • Assemble second cake on top (arrange it flat bottom on top for a neater topped cake), top with whipped cream and decorate with walnuts and fresh strawberries
  • Enjoy!
Notes
  • Use milk chocolate for a milder version
  • Leave the cream out and instead make and use a dark chocolate icing in its place
  • Squash can be used in place of zucchini if you find you have lots of them growing in your garden!
  • Swap walnuts for more fresh fruit or even choc chips!
  • Use wholemeal spelt flour – this does make the cake heavier so I recommend adding in some vanilla yogurt if you use any type of wholemeal flour

  1. According to me like all other art skill cooking is also a great art and skill. If one chilly is more or a pinch of salt is less in any recipe will make the recipe bad. So you are made here a great work of food.

  2. it’s full of insightful information and entertaining descriptions. Your point of view is the best among many. keep posting ..With most recent mechanical developments (practically consistently), the eventual fate of airport advertising in Surat looks further profitable and the day doesn't become visible to be distant as every outdoor sponsor changes to airport advertising as one of the successful parkways of brand advancement.
