Cake de zapallito  italiano (zucchini) y chocolate










 
 
 
Este queque de zapallito italiano con chocolate queda super! 
Algunas amigas en USA  que suelen hacerlo me lo habian comentado hasta que el otro día encontré este receta en
My recipes.com y me gustó porque el glaze de chocolate es muy liviano, no lleva mantequilla-
 
Nota: El zapallito va rallado y no se nota, yo por si acaso
no mencioné que tenía zapallito y a todos les encantó, no son tan open mind aqui ja! Como postre lo serví con un poco de crema.
 
 
Ingredientes

 aceite o mantequilla para el molde
3/4  taza azucar granulada
1/2 taza de azúcar  rubia
1/2 taza de queso crema (tipo Filadelfia)
1/3 taza de aceite vegetal

2 claras de huevo
1 cucharadita de extracto de vainilla
2 y 1/2 tazas de harina sin polvos de hornear
1/2 taza de cocoa  sin azúcar
2 cucharaditas de polvos de hornear
