Zucchini Chocolate Bundt - I Like Big Bundts 2011
Chocolate & Zucchini Bundt
I Like Big Bundts - Day #20

Whoo Hoo! 2/3 done with I Like Big Bundts 3!! We are on Day #20 of my crazy posting of 30 bundts in 30 days! And that means we are getting closer to National Bundt Day (November 15th). I hope you have your Bundt recipe picked out to celebrate the day of the sexy cake with lots of curves. :)

Today, it's a vegetable bundt. Doesn't that make it sound totally healthy?! This bundt has fresh zucchini and chocolate. You can't taste the zucchini, but you can really enjoy the chocolate.

This recipe is from Clotilde Dusoulier's blog Chocolate and Zucchini. My friend and I attended a book signing when Clotilde was in the Los Angeles area a few years ago. Love her blog and book!

The recipe is very easy... some zucchini, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, flour and butter or oil. I used butter and instead of chocolate chips, I chopped up some Trader Joe's 72% chocolate. Instead of coffee granules, I put in a dash of instant espresso powder.

I baked it in a 10-cup Bundt pan. It doesn't rise too much and the texture is dense...this isn't a light and airy cake. It's great with coffee or tea or a nice tall glass of milk.

Here is the bundt straight from the oven... You can melt chocolate to top the bundt or powdered sugar. I went for the simplicity of powdered sugar. Clotilde makes her in a 10" springform pan...but I, of course, bundtized it. :)
