chocolate & zucchini

A recent post by Anna reminded me of a recipe I've meaning to try for quite sometime now. It's the chocolate & zucchini cake of course, and although you can find a lot of recipes for this online, I wanted to try the one by Clotilde Dusolier, from the famous blog with the same name and one of my favorite food blogs all round (recipe can be found here)
The fact that it's zucchini season and that my in-laws brought us a huge shipment from their farm last week might have had something to do with this sudden urge.

Anyway, the recipe is quite easy and preparations were made in no time ...



We didn't have chocolate chips in the house though, so we had to improvise





Doesn't look quite so good, right ? But let me assure you that the final result is worth it



Hummm, what do you think now ? It was bitter enough for A. and sweet enough for me, so basically it was perfect. And a bit crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside, like all chocolate cakes should be. And no, you definitely can't taste the zucchini anywhere.

And I showed you the dessert first, but here's a shot of lunch too: fresh tagliatelle with spinach, dried sun tomatoes and feta cheese, one of my pasta favorites.

Great minds think alike, that is precisely the chocolate zucchini recipe I was telling T about - and forgotten to dig out for her, so she gotta thank you for it :) it´s great cake indeed.

you've done a good job of it, but it is easier to chop chocolate with a serrated knife. just in case you want to do it again.
