Best Ever Chocolate-Zucchini Bundt Cake #CakeSliceBakers

Nothing is as abundant in our area during August as zucchini. Recipes using zucchini abound.  I had tried a chocolate zucchini recipe once before, but we were not fans. But when this recipe coincided with a birthday celebration, I decided to give it another go. The recipe suggests coating with cocoa powder, but I decided to add a chocolate glaze to make it a little bit more festive.

This cake was a winner. It did not have the odd aftertaste the previous recipe I tried had. Everyone at the birthday party loved it, and all were surprised to find out that it contained zucchini. The cake was wonderfully moist and very chocolatey. I appreciated that it was not too sweet.


Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is Zoë Bakes Cakes by Zoē François. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the links below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.

  1. This looks so gorgeous with that frosting on top. What a great way to use extra zucchini!

  2. Love it. I agree - it needs the frosting because it's not very sweet.

  3. A very festive birthday cake. I'm sure it was well received.

  4. I made this to leave with my son and his apartment-mates last weekend. They probably would have appreciated the icing.
