    Chef Kate's Note:

    From Chocolate and Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen by Clotilde Dusoulier. This can be made with either butter or olive oil, but if you use the oil make sure it is a really good one with a flavor that will complement the other ingredients. Clothilde suggests garnishing with very thin zucchini slices, sprinkling with 10x or glazing with bittersweet chocolate; I go for confectioner's sugar sifted through a doily or stencil.

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 10-inch springform pan with butter or oil.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a food processor, process the sugar and butter until creamy (you can also do this by hand, armed with a sturdy spatula or in a stand mixer). Add the vanilla, coffee granules, and eggs, mixing well between each addition.
    3. 3
      Reserve a cup of the flour mixture and add the rest to the egg mixture. Mix until just combined; the batter will be thick.
    4. 4
      Add the zucchini and chocolate chips to the reserved flour mixture and toss to coat. Fold into the batter and blend with a wooden spoon-don’t over mix. Pour into the prepared cake pan and level the surface with a spatula.
    5. 5
      Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
    6. 6
      Transfer to a rack to cool for 10 minutes, run a knife around the pan to loosen the cake, and unclasp the sides of the pan.
    7. 7
      Let cool to room temperature before serving.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, glaze with melted chocolate, or decorate with a few slices of raw zucchini (you don’t have to eat them, though).
