Preparation Time 30 minutes
Cooking Time 35 minutes


Ingredients for 12 servings

  • 100g pre-cooked beetroot
  • 200g zucchini
  • 200g dark chocolate (min 70% cocoa)
  • 100g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 50g flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Butter for the cake tin


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour the cake tin.
  3. Clean and peel the zucchini and cut into cubes.
  4. Steam the zucchini for a few minutes, then blend the zucchini and beet into a puree.
  5. Gently melt the chocolate and add the zucchini-beet puree.
  6. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla and sugar.
  7. Add the puree and mix. Then add the salt, baking powder and flour and mix again.

The zucchini and beet give the cake a juicy texture. The two vegetables are rich in fiber and replace the fat in this cake recipe.
