Chocolate zucchini cake

January 29, 2012

Here is a pic of the cake we made in yesterdays class. This recipe only just squeezed into the healthy class because it has zucchini and raw cacao included! I have just noticed that my recent entries have a bit of a chocolate slant. Perhaps this is because I am on day 27 of being sugar free!!! Anyway, here is the recipe:
