Aaaand best of all, beautifully simple!

  • Equipment:

      2 bowls

      baking pan (e.g. one that's good for brownies) OR springform pan OR you can pour the batter into pretty much any sort of cake pan

  • Ingredients:

      300g zucchini

      4 eggs

      250ml neutral plant oil

      1 sachet vanilla sugar or a good pinch of powdered vanilla

      350g sugar

      375g (wheat) flour

      1 sachet baking powder

      50g ground hazelnuts

      4 tablespoons instant chocolate powder (or cocoa, if you like it less sweet)

      1 teaspoon cinnamon

      1 teaspoon baking soda (=sodium bicarbonate)


      1 cup powdered sugar

      2-3 tablespoons orange juice

  • 1. Wash, peel and grate the zucchini (not too fine.)
    2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, hazelnuts, cocoa and cinnamon.
    3. Beat eggs with oil, sugar, and vanilla (sugar) into a foamy mix.
    4. Add flour mix, beat to a smooth batter
    5. Fold in grated zucchini.

    Pour batter into baking or springform pan and smooth down the surface. Then bake for around 55min at 175°C.

    If you like icing: Mix orange juice and powdered sugar for the icing, poke a few small holes into the warm cake with a fork, then coat with icing.

    ~And now: enjoy your zucchini cake!~

    How much is a "sachet"? I have never encountered that term in a recipe before.
