{Chocolate Zucchini Cake (egg and dairy free)}

Preparation time: 5 min

Cooking time: 20 min

Yield: 16-24


  • 300 g shredded zucchini (see pic above)
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 200 g sugar
  • 250 g flour
  • 50 g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 pinch of salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F (180 º C)
  2. Oil a 20 x 20 cm baking pan, or line with paper parchment
  3. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients with a spoon. Yes, it is that easy. Batter will look a bit weird, but believe me, it will taste great (you might taste raw batter, and it already tastes good)
  4. Pour batter in the prepared pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely

    This is a great recipe! It’s so easy to make and it’s moist and delicious. We ate it for breakfast, mid-day snack, and dessert after dinner. Thanks for sharing it.

    This recipe is amazing! I’ve already tried it twice and i love it! I don’t like butter and grease that much, so I try to avoid them as much as possible… thank you for providing this super receta!

    I hope this is not a horrible question…. but can I substitute some of the sugar with stevia?
