Baking and low carb - does it fit? And what does the zucchini do in the dough? Yeah, I know! When baking, many immediately think of wheat flour and tons of sugar. And vegetables in the dough sounds a little less appetizing. I can reassure you. But you should definitely try the super-juicy low carb cake with zucchini. A really fast, easy and incredibly delicious recipe.

Healthy Baking

I do not know about you, but cake and pies are often too powerful and too sweet for me ! But baking is also healthy! The baking recipes that you find on my blog meet my taste! It is sweetened with raw cane sugar, maple syrup, dates, bananas or apple pulp.

In my back category you will find sweet and savory recipes (also low carb baking recipes). I bake the delicious cinnamon balls very often at Christmas time. And if I'm asked for a healthy cake recipe for the birthday party, then I always recommend this fantastic carrot cake. And now, at Christmas time, a fruitcake should not be missed.

Low Carb Cake Step by Step

Wonderfully juicy and packed with healthy ingredients!

I love this fast and wonderfully juicy low carb cake. And do not worry, you will not even taste the zucchini at all.

For the low carb cake, first the zucchini are grated and an apple cut into small cubes. Then eggs, maple syrup, baking powder, ground vanilla and baking cocoa are stirred until frothy and mixed with ground almonds and zucchini. Finally, then the apple pieces are under the dough. The dough now comes in a baking pan, like this great silicone mold that I like to use.

  • For the glaze Melt couverture, coconut oil and maple syrup in a water bath. Pour the liquid chocolate over the cake. Then decorate it with chopped almonds. If the couverture is too firm, just fold in a little more coconut oil.
