Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Chocolate Ganache
Cream together the following:
- ½ Cup Margarine (or butter flavored shortening)
- ½ Cup Salad Oil
- 1 ¾ Cup Sugar
Add the following, and beat well:
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- ½ Cup Sour Cream
In a separate bowl, mix the following together:
- 2 ¼ Cup Flour
- 4 TBSP Cocoa
- ½ Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tsp. Baking Soda
- ½ Tsp Cinnamon
- ½ Tsp Nutmeg
Add the dry ingredients to the creamed ingredients, and beat well.
Stir in the following:
- 2 Cups of finely chopped or grated zucchini
Pour batter into a greased and floured bunt pan.
Bake at 350˚F for 40-50 minutes, or until an inserted fork comes out clean. When cake is slightly cooled, turn out onto serving plate. Sprinkle cake with powdered sugar.
Heat the following together until chocolate is melted and well blended
- 1 Cup Heavy Cream
- 9 oz Semi Sweet Baking Chocolate
When ganache is prepared, gradually pour over the chocolate zucchini cake.
Note: I think this would be really good without the ganache.
