  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup Choc Chips (Optional)

Notes

Freezer Friendly, if you slice once cooled and wrap individually you can grab as you go. Defrost in microwave for 45-60 seconds or let thaw.

  • Will certainly be trying this recipe out. I used to make a zucchini cake in the microwave but I’ve lost that recipe.

  • The added veggies are nice ! I would use wholemeal or brown spelt flour instead of refined flour and maple syrup/ coconut palm syrup/ yacon syrup instead of sugar

  • Interesting. I wonder what this tastes like. Does the chocolate overpower the veggies?

  • Loaf cakes are the best! They are so easy to slice and pack. A delicious combination of ingredients for a loaf cake.

  • I love zucchini in a cake! It makes it so moist! (Plus hidden goodness for the whole family, especially the three who don’t like zucchini!)


    • I suspect it is a choc loaf that is delicious when warmed a little.
