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...

Hi Matt. Nice to meet someone from the U.K Thank you for your encouraging reply :). Yeah, I'm sure we all make mistakes at the start. I have however changed all my cutlery, plates, chopping boards and binned my toaster as I can't eat gluten-free bread due to the egg intolerance. I do th...

Wow, I was on the EXACT same stuff, it is basically medical speed, amphetamine. Yeah it will motivate you but it is addictive and withdrawal is a real nightmare with it. I use EXTRA b-vitamins and give myself a extra kick with a red eye coffee sometimes now days to avoid those pills. And I do not...

So I have one pesky symptom that in the last few years has cropped up and never gone away. Lack of motivation to do some very basic things. So basic it's embarrassing to talk about. I barely manage to do a lot of adult tasks these days. It's a real stretch. It's like something is blocking me. Any...

Yeah I need someone to attend with me, I had someone else but they canceled on me. The hotel room is booked from the 16th-20th of August. I can pick up from the airport, greyhound, or train station and drop off if need be, room is booked from the 16th technically a day before the convention so yo...

No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is ...
