I am looking for a recipe that I have heard exists for a chocolate zucchini mayonnaise cake.
Here is one recipe that uses mayonnaise in the cake recipe.
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. oil
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sour milk
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1/4 c. cocoa
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. grated zucchini
Cream together the mayonnaise, oil, sugar, and vanilla.
Add eggs and sour milk. Beat together.
Add the flour, cocoa, spices, and salt. Beat until mixed.
Add the grated zucchini. Blend thoroughly.
Pour into 9 x 13-inch baking pan,
Sprinkle top with 1/4 cup (or more) chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped nuts.
Bake at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes
Here is a chocolate zucchini cake recipe.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup sour milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups zucchini, finely diced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
Cream butter, oil, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and sour milk. Beat until smooth.
Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and cinnamon together and add to creamed mixture.
Beat well. Stir in diced zucchini.
Pour into a 9x13 inch pan and sprinkle top with chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
This is new to me so I will have to try this soon. Sounds like a tasty but healthy cake (if that is possible). Numerous recipes on the Internet but basically all are about the same.
The two recipes given are very similar except Coville123's cake uses butter instead of mayonnaise but that is an easy fix - just substitute the mayonnaise for the same amount of butter the recipe calls for.
Most recipes call for sour milk or buttermilk and many people do not have these in their fridge. Sour milk is an easy fix - 1/2 - 3/4 cup skim milk mixed with 1/2 tsp. lemon juice or vinegar.
Brunt cakes are always a nice change so if you want to try something different maybe you can check these out. No mayonnaise but lots of chocolate and zucchini.
