year of the cake

My plan for a Year of the Cake petered out pitifully until last week, when I managed to get it back up and limping along by baking a Dark Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake for my friend Katherine’s belated birthday get together.

The recipe is from Serving up the Harvest by Andrea Chesman. You’d never know there was any form of vegetable in there, it’s the densest, darkest chocolate cake I’ve ever made. The leftovers were approved of and consumed by M, who is no fan of the green, but a dark chocolate aficionado.

Noola was considerably less approving, as you can see in this picture taken by Katherine.

    Great pic! Love it!

    check out the chocolate peanut butter cup cake in Sweet Utopia – you can also find it on the voracious vegan blog. Truly the best cake I have ever eaten. I nearly wept when I ate the first piece.

    This link sent my home PC off bleeping, but ok on work PC, so query virus? I am happy to send you a pdf if you send me an email.

    I didn’t write the book, but I’ve just bought it on strenght of this recipe. Wow!
