Q. When is a zucchini not a zucchini?

a) When it is (almost) a marrow

b) When it is a chocolate cake

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for a while. A friend has a garden at work, and when this beauty grew over the weekend I jumped at the chance to make one of these cakes. So moist and rich (all white flour, no chocolate chips, slightly more zucchini than called for.) Delicious.

    Mmmmm, looks yummy. We’re managing to catch our zucchini before they morph but that cake is a good excuse for letting one grow.

    Yummo! I think I need to plant some zucchini next year! There is an annabel langbein recipe I’ve been meaning to try that is a cake in which you include either grated zucchini or pumpkin – I guess it is similar to your one.

    That has zucchini in it? Looks too rich and yummy to have a vegetable hiding in there.

    an addition of a handful of lucsious red fleshed plums chopped up to the mixture and the cake served with stewed plums – our current excess – also adds to the results!! Also the mixture is not quite so dry.
    will definitely save this recipe.

    I was going to say Yum – but they beat me to it! This is one of my favourite combinations at the moment – the recipe I have suggests adding cherries, but I have added cranberries (and sometimes walnuts) and that makes a very tasty little muffin.

    Thanks so much for the beautful necklace – up on my blog today xx
