Introduction

Really yummy want to hide another veggie kids love to hate! My kids love their "lunchbox choc-mint cake"but can't understand why the mint taste is so delicate when they can see all the "mint" in the cake!! I sometimes put a white mint flavoured icing on top.

Ingredients

Serves: 0

  • 90 butter
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 250 superfine sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 313 self-raising flour
  • 63 unsweetened cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 63 milk
  • 250 grated zucchini
  • 125 chopped pecan nuts
