I think this is the healthiest you can make a cake. It turned out really moist. It was a huge hit and I didn't feel bad about eating it.
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups shredded zuchini
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 pan. Set aside.
- In a large bowl mix applesauce, sugar and vanilla extract until well combined. In another bowl combine flours, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. A little at a time combine the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. When combined, mix the zucchini into the mixture and spread evenly in the pan.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake gently springs back when touched.
You can use any chocolate frosting recipe you like. It is such a moist cake and has such a nice chocolate flavor that you really only need a simple white sugar glaze on top.
