Kelli’s Old-Fashioned Chocolate Zucchini Cake


Kelli Tracy, who worked in our test kitchen, has been making this chocolate zucchini cake for years.  It’s a hand-me-down recipe and has been around for years.  She was generous enough to share this with us.  It is dense, almost like brownies.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Ramstadt Breda Rich Dark Cocoa
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup water
2 cups grated zucchini

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease or line with parchment paper a 9 x 13-inch pan.

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together.
  2. Add the vegetable oil, vanilla, water, and grated zucchini.  Mix well.  Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until done.  Cool on a wire rack.  After cooling, frost as desired.
