Often just 1 serving of cake can stack up to more than a meal’s worth of calories, and more than a day’s worth of sugar and fat! But not this cake. It’s incredibly moist, thanks to a number of healthy ingredients: zucchini, banana, pineapple, sour cream! Ohh and let’s not forget about the dense chocolate flavour from the cocoa and chocolate chips mmmmm!
My decision to make this cake was inspired by a massive zucchini that I picked up at a local organic farm called Urban Edibles. The farm was started by a couple of university students studying agriculture, who have a passion for farming. They’re incredibly knowledgeable and are always offering tips for growing your own organic vegetables at home.
Large zucchinis are great for baking because they have less moisture than the small ones, so you don’t need to strain them.
