Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

Here's what you make when life (or the garden or a friend) gives you too many zucchinis...and it's delicious!

Servings: 16

3 Large Eggs
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Granulated Sugar (11.25 ounces)
3/4 Cup Low Fat Buttermilk
1/2 Cup Avocado or Olive Oil
1 Orange Zest
2 Teaspoons Chili Powder
1 1/2 Cup All-purpose Flour (7.5 ounces)
1/2 Cup Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (2 ounces)
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Cup Shredded Zucchini (10 ounces)
1/2 Cup Pecans, chopped

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a bundt pan with olive oil (use a silicone brush if you need to spread th eoil more) and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, buttermilk, oil, zest and chili powder.
  • Sift together and add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  • Stir until just combined and no dry streaks remain.
  • Stir in the shredded zucchini and pecans.
  • Spread the batter evenly in the pan and bake for 40-45 minutes until the top springs back lightly to the touch and a toothpick comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Let cool completely. Unmold.
  • Serve alone, with chocolate glaze or a dollop of lightly sweetened chocolate whipped cream
Notes:

Do not squeeze and drain the zucchini; the moisture in the zucchini keeps the cake moist.
