Chocolate Zucchini Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Day 5 of I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundt Cakes

As much as I like this whole interwebnets thing (and I seriously am in love with the Verizon Fios at my new place), I just wish they could make some improvements. Such as spammers geting little shocks when they try to send me yet another email about cheap drugs for problems I won't ever have because I don't have the equipment for that. And, of course, smell-a-vision.

Because if you could smell this cake, you would instantly make it. It is chocolatey, but not too rich. It is warm, but not hot. It has veggies, but you can't tell. And you would want to make someone this bundt cake.

So I'll tell you how. And let me know if you make it...or if you invent internet scratch-and-sniff websites.

Welcome to Day 5 of I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundt Cakes....my crazy (yes, this get crazier every day...what was I thinking?!??!) baking adventure. National Bundt Day is November 15th and I'm posting one Bundt cake every day until then.

Simply Recipes uses all zucchini, but I found these lovely yellow squash at the farmer's market and wanted to give them a go with the zucchini. Some orange zest is included...a nice and subtle touch. I believe chocolate and orange are just great together.

Elise of Simply Recipes (I heard her speak at the closing session of BlogHerFood - and we were all introduced to her supportive parents as well) doesn't specify if you should use natural or Dutch-processed cocoa. I believe I used Dutch...but I didn't take notes. Oops!

I skipped the nuts and mine baked up in the Bundt in 45 minutes. Elise makes her in a tube pan.

This bundt looks fantastic! I made a chocolate zucchini cake from King Arthur Flour and it was so good! I will have to try this recipe and see how the two compare :)

I love chocolate zuchhini cake. And I'm loving your 30 days of bundts. I actually don't even have a bundt pan, but yours are so pretty I might just have to go grab one!

This bundt is absolutely gorgeous. And I know you said you have a bunch of co-workers, but I still don't know how they don't get overloaded. :P

Mary Ann said... [Reply to comment]

Gorgeous!
I really want to make this one. I wish I had co-workers, it would make the decision so much easier.

Carolyn Jung said... [Reply to comment]

I have long wanted a scratch and sniff mode on my computer. Hah. Actually, even better, I want the ability to reach into my screen and pull out a piece of your chocolate zucchini bundt right now to eat. Can you please make that happen? Pretty please? ;)

I love the combo of chocolate and zucchini! I also love that every time I see a new post from you in my reader, I sing a little Sir Mix A Lot to myself.

Carol Peterman said... [Reply to comment]

How beautiful. Thirty days of bundts, really? That's a lot of bundt.

Stacy said... [Reply to comment]

The name of your project has kept me giggling for longer than I care to admit. Beautiful cakes! I just moved and now I am impatient for my bundt pan to arrive.

Esi said... [Reply to comment]

You are rocking this bundt challenge! By the way, this is pretty much the only way I will eat zucchini

Every time you make a bundt cake I think it looks so good I need to have a piece of it; so will you send me one? Oh and about those spammers you'd think the so called spam filters would be able to catch them all by just blocking a few key words. In fact, I recently gave that list to my husband who just laughed out loud, the dog.
