Chocolate Spice Zucchini Mini-Bundt Cakes

Susan Bickta


This recipe is a great way to use the abundance of zucchini from your garden. It's light, moist and decandent. The chocolate and spices are the perfect combination. I always make extra cakes and freeze them to give as gifts at Christmas. They make a great addition to my food baskets that I give as gifts.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat mini-bundt pan(s) with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soad, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Mix well and set aside.

  6. Cool for 15-20 minutes in pan, then carefully transfer to wire rack. Cool completely. When ready to serve, sprinkle each mini-bundt cake with confectioner's sugar. Makes 12+ cakes.
