Chocolate & Zucchini Loaf

For quite a while I have heard that
chocolate and zucchini mix quiet well together and have wanted to try it.
Yesterday I finally decided to make my family a ‘chocolate cake’ but with the
added benefits of crisp zucchini, golden olive oil and fresh yogurt. I was extremely
pleased with the outcome it was moister than any cake that I have ever had. You
can sprinkle powdered sugar over the top like I have or serve with fresh fruit
just make sure you do not tell anyone your secret healthy ingredients. 

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 medium zucchinis, peeled and grated
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/4 cup olive oil
60 grams plain yogurt
2 tablespoons milk
1.     
Pre-heat
oven to 350F. In a large bowl add sugar, egg, milk and vanilla. With a hand
mixer beat. Carefully add flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, olive
oil and yogurt, mix well then fold in zucchini.
2.     
Add
mixture into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick
comes out clean.
Yields: 1 loaf
