chocolate zucchini cake...

I just made this chocolate zucchini cake.  I used to make it a lot - the kids love it, but haven't done it for ages - or what seems like ages today, it was time... I had a bag of zucchini's in the fridge and everything else in the cupboard. 
If you look closely  at the photo, you can see tiny specks of green - there's the zucchini !!

The recipe:

150 gr butter
200 gr sugar
1/4 tspn salt
3 eggs
100g melted chocolate
200g finely grated zucchini
100g ground almonds
150gr plain flour
1tspn baking powder

1. Cream butter and sugar
2. Add eggs one at a time and beat in well
3. Add cooled melted chocolate, and zucchini.  Mix well.
4. Add flour, baking powder, salt and almonds and mix well again.
5. Bake at 180 Celcius for 55 mins.

So good with fresh whipped cream and berries!!
