What do you do when it rains non stop? the roads are flooded...so there's no way you can take a walk or the car. The programs on TV are boring and how long can one browse...
So what did I do? I baked a cake and experimented with zucchini and chocolate. Having never used zucchini in a cake and only in a salad, I did get quite a few surprising glances and my other half asked me not to please add it into the cake. But me being me, who ensures she gets done what she plans to do, I did make the cake...yes with the zucchini in it and the other half of mine did eat it..He still thinks there was no zucchini and was just chocolate.
And where did I go for a recipe....Food librarian of course, who has been doing bundts almost every other day...It is a visual pleasure to visit her place every time a new post is up...Each bundt is different and very gorgeously done. She's done 25 till now and I am sure going to try more of them.
I chose to do her chocolate zucchini bundt. Mary had done Simply Recipe's Chocolate Zucchini Cake . Mary used squash along with zucchini but mine had zucchini with orange zest and chocolate of course.
The cake was moist with an extremely tender crumb. There was no proof tastewise for the presence of zucchinni in the cake. It was mildly sweet which was a a tad bit less for our sweet palate. Hence the chocolate cream ganache with butterscotch chips.
It was crunchy on the outside but with the ganache it turned moist. It will probably have tasted better if cream cheese frosting had been used but owing to exorbitant prices of cream cheese in India, the chocolate ganache and the butterscotch chips made a great great substitution!
