Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I think this is the healthiest you can make a cake.  It turned out really moist.  It was a huge hit and I didn't feel bad about eating it.

1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups shredded zuchini

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 pan.  Set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix applesauce, sugar and vanilla extract until well combined.  In another bowl combine flours, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda.  A little at a time combine the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.  When combined, mix the zucchini into the mixture and spread evenly in the pan. 
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake gently springs back when touched.

You can use any chocolate frosting recipe you like.  It is such a moist cake and has such a nice chocolate flavor that you really only need a simple white sugar glaze on top.
