Chocolate Banana Zucchini Cake
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 large overripe banana (mashed)
Confectioner's sugar (for sprinkling on the top)- optional
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 10-inch cake or springform pan with oil.
In a food processor, process the sugar and butter until creamy. You can also do this by hand using a sturdy spatula.
Add the vanilla essence, coffee granules and eggs mixing well between each addition.
Reserve a cup of the flour mixture and add the rest to the egg mixture. Mix until just combined. The batter will be thick.
Add the zucchini and chocolate chips to the reserved flour mixture and toss to coat.
Pour into the prepared cake pan and level the surface with a spatula.
