Tips and Tricks - Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Tips and Tricks: Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Before adding the zucchini to the wet mixture, make sure to blot it lightly with a towel. Make sure not to squeeze the moisture out. Use all-purpose flour rather than cake flour since it is too fine when combined with ultra-light cocoa powder.

Do not worry the chocolate zucchini cake will not taste like coffee since the espresso powder will only emphasize the chocolate flavor. To add moisture, you can use either sour cream or plain yogurt.

You must remove excess water from the zucchini as much as possible. By the time you add the zucchini to the batter, make sure to stir until it combines just enough because overmixing can result in gummy and hard texture. It is best to use cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate since it lends more chocolate flavor.
