Vegan Zucchini and Chocolate Cake




This morning I baked a cake with the ”help” of my son Auguste, hehe.

He’s so funny, he love to watch me cook/bake and while I cook I explain everything to him, all the steps, the ingredients…and for all the time it takes, he don’t say a word… He’s maybe a future chef 😉


1 cake (8 servings)


* 1 cup whole wheat flour

* 1 teaspoon baking soda

* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 1/2 cup pure unsweetened cocoa powder

* 1/2 cup sugar

* 1/2 cup unsweetened pear puree

(you can use apple puree too, I used the pear puree my mom made)

* 1 large very ripe banana, mashed

* 2 small zucchinis, grated ( 1 1/2 cups)

* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

* 1/4 cup chocolate chips

* Preheat oven to 350′F

* In a bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and cocoa powder.

* In another bowl combine the mashed banana, grated zucchini, vanilla and pear puree.

* Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Mix well. Then fold in the chocolate chips.

*  Pour mixture into a loaf pan and bake. (I’m always using silicone)

* Bake for about 50 minutes. If a toothpick comes out clean, the cake is ready.

* Remove from the oven, let it cool.

*Frost your cake (optional). I used this recipe : VEGAN CHOCOLATE FROSTING
