Zucchini Chocolate Cake (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Valerie Wells.

Cream:
1 stick (½ cup) butter
1 tablespoon shortening
1 ½ cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar

Add & beat well:
2 jumbo eggs**

Add:
1 cup unsweetened pureed fresh zuchinni*
1 ½ cup Gluten Free Flour Mix (any kind)
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon soda

Beat until smooth. Bake in greased & floured 8" x 8 square baking pan at 350F for 45 minutes (If you bake in glass, reduce the heat by 25F).

I like my cakes semi sweet. If you prefer a sweeter cake you can substitute some of the cocoa powder with corn starch. The recipe originally calls for ½ cup corn starch & I substituted cocoa powder for the corn starch. I dont know whats so special about this recipe, but it never fails. Im not a great baker, but this recipe is helping me improve my reputation!

*I pureed & froze tons of zucchini this summer in one cup containers. The original recipe calls for applesauce. I believe applesauce or any pureed fruit would work equally well.

** If you dont have jumbo eggs, you can use 2 large eggs & an extra egg yoke or egg white.

Delicious! I made a lemon instead of chocolate version of this since I didn't have the chocolate. I substituted 1/4 cup corn starch for the 1/2 cup chocolate. I added 1 teaspoon of ground lemon peal, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon of lemon extract and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. I baked a double batch for a layered birthday cake and used a lemon frosting. The whole thing was just GONE. I guess they liked it...

Getting a celiac disease diagnosis is shocking. Expect to go through all the stages of grief. Your best defense is to learn how to read labels, avoid cross contamination and consider eating as few processed foods for a few weeks. It may speed healing (wish someone would have advised me to do s...

That is very helpful. Thank you so much.

I would read it as ?high?. In any case, you were positive on the TTG and the DGP. You only need one positive. I had pretty severe intestinal damage and never even had a positive on the EMA or the TTG even when they were re-run several times during follow-up visits.

Thank you! That does help. I was just confused about the ?negative? under the EMA Titer when my level says ?1:40 high?. Any insight there? Just wondering if it?s further confirming or denying? I first thought confirming.
