For anyone with zucchinis overflowing from the garden this gluten free zucchini chocolate chip cake is a perfect way to eat more zucchini!
Start by grating some zucchinis.
In a bowl add eggs,
a splash of vanilla,
and oil. Then mix.
Add flour, xanthan gum, cinnamon, ginger,
baking powder and soda.
Then mix thoroughly. It took me a few minutes to get all the lumps out. Maybe it would be different if I actually sifted my flour first …but that ain’t gonna happen.
Next add grated zucchini,
chocolate chunks or chips,
or big chocolate chips, whatever you have. And mix.
spray the Bundt pan with cooking spray. I’ve tried oiling it by hand but the spray is so much faster and goes on so evenly.
Dust with flour.
Pour batter into pan and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.
No photos of making the glaze, my hands were sticky and I think I just forgot.
brush on the lemon glaze.
Hopefully you will do a better job than I did.
Then you must have a slice to see if it’s any good.
