First let me start off by saying that I love you no matter what! Not a silly question at all! Your email address will not be published. Hooray for Pamela! Been watching people make this all week during the pandemic and am excited to try. I try not to eat any grains so this recipe appealed to me. From my Mr. Picky: “This is the best brownie I’ve ever had!” Thank you!! This cake is probably one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever had. And how much to substitute one egg? I’m new to the ” family” ….I made this today because I have so much zucchini in my fridge and it sounded so good. Very confident feeding this to children knowing what’s in it! They are a favorite in our house, too. Plus a fruit platter. pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 1 HR 15Mins or until skewer inserted in center comes out clean. I don’t have any instant coffee powder but I do have an espresso maker could I just make a strong shot and use that instead? Topped it with a dark choc ganache, as I did this for Hubby’s birthday. Would I need to make any adjustments and how many do you think one batch would make? I’m planning on making it again for Christmas, but I would like to add some peppermint extract to it and make it a peppermint cake (I’m also going to crumble up some gluten free peppermint cookies in it). If you freeze it, defrost in the refrigerator overnight and then on the countertop to thaw completely. Would I need to decrease any other liquid? I’m not a baseball fan but got to say this is a Home Run of a dessert! Not essential at all! I then cooked this in a ring tin (like a Bundt), as it seems to me, a good way to cook cake evenly, and not be drier around the outside edges. I love this feature of the app. No one knew what was in it and the ate the entire thing because it was so moist, chocolatey, fudgy, just AMAZING !!! Thank you for another great recipe! How much peppermint extract do you think it will need? Thank you Pamela! Because this grain-free chocolate cake which just so happens to have zucchini in it is AMAZING. Zucchini! Can’t make it too much because I’ll eat the whole thing! Thanks! Grease an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9-inch pan. I do cut it up & freeze it, so I am not tempted to sit down with the pan & a fork. Check them out! Devour it. I started to answer then thought best ask! I need to eat these again but have no zucchini. But you’ll convince yourself it’s healthful! Do u have any subs for it? However, any suggestions for decreasing the choc chips or substitutions for making this a little more ‘diabetic’ friendly? It is sweetened with maple syrup and that’s all. As my friend Chrissy said, it’s like magic. I have to avoid almonds. We love our chocolate cake … Grease an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9-inch pan. In this? I’m really concerned with what I put in my body and would have loved to have this information on hand. I know, isn’t awesome how the zucchini is undetectable? Sunflower butter does have a slightly nuttier flavor, almost like peanut butter. Really info to know! Hope that’s helpful! Only because EVERY SINGLE dish of yours that I have made is a keeper will I be trying this cake, haha. This looks like a delicious recipe! The cake will still be great without it. Made it for dinner dessert today and no one believed me that there was no grains. I get it. It’s amazingly delicious. I would try a flax egg and see if that would work. My husband and I absolutely loved this and that’s huge coming from him since he’s typically a bit quicker to shun ‘healthier’ desserts than I am. Enjoy! When I read the ingredients I was skeptical it would taste like cake, but I am happy to report I was wrong. Scrumptious!!! He was SHOCKED when I mentioned it had zucchini in it – waited to disclose this after he took a few bites of course! I’m going to try them as cupcakes for my 2 year olds birthday. 30 %. Definitely add the coffee. I did it in cupcake tray and it worked perfectly. I ended up baking the cake in two 8×8 Pyrex dishes, side by side and they came out beautifully. And so easy to make! This was absolutely incredible. If you are nut-free, don’t sweat. this is one of my all time favorites! All good substitutions! Gradually add sugar 1/4 cup at a time beating well after each addition. Unfortunately, it is NOT sweetened only with maple syrup, as it also has semi-sweet chocolate chips. The next time you make it you will freeze most of it so that you are not tempted by its chocolaty goodness and inhale three-fourths of it before the kids get home. Pamela, Everyone who has tried it, loves it! . Hi! I have also frozen this cake and glazed it before serving, Total Carbohydrate I have made this and all have loved it so! (I would have used almond milk if I had any). Great recipe – it’s so fun to see the surprise on someone’s face when I tell them what’s in it (and what’s not in it). I made it and delicious and so shared with my sister-in-law. Took about 35 mins in my oven. I poured 1/2 the batter in, sprinkled 1/2 cup of chips, then the other half and the rest of the chips on top….so it looked really “chippy.” My kids loved it. I could not believe how the zucchini disappears. Sift together Flour,baking powder,baking soda,and salt. THREE CHEERS FOR PAMELA!!!! Hi Shelley, I’ve made it without draining the zucchini. We had some guests come over that were in a specific diet with no grains or dairy allowed so I made it using dairy free chocolate chips by enjoy life. I didn’t use applesauce, as there would probably still be too many carbs for a keto recipe. Hi! https://comfybelly.com/2017/07/chocolate-zucchini-bread-using-almond-flour And there are other chocolate products not sweetened with refined sugar, such as Honey Mamas, which can be chopped into chunks and used as well! They are super delicious and super easy. 1/4 cup of applesauce? Let me know if you try it! So glad I tried it and so easy!! In a bowl or a food processor, combine cocoa powder, almond flour, arrowroot, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. You can use tahini which will give it a sesame flavor. Your recipes are always winners for my family & that is a tough standard. I’m obsessed! Great comment, thank you! But I when I made the cake with sunflower butter for some nut-free people, they couldn’t detect it. Can anyone recommend a substitute for the egg in this recipe? Your zucchini brownie recipe lools delish. Yes! It also stays well in the fridge for the week. The nuts also add good fat, too! Make it. I read your comment about flex-egg but wondered if an apply sauce or mashed banana will work? I used half a stick of butter, honey, chopped walnuts. ~Kristina. It is a delicious recipe and I hope you try it. Ahhhh!! So glad you enjoyed them. Thanks so much for your quick response. Thanks. If you want to remove the cake from the pan in one piece, line it with unbleached parchment paper as well. Nut butter is totally critical here. This is one of the few recipe I have created and tried that I can not even tell that it was made without white It was so delicious and moist.
