Grate the zucchini.
In a bowl whisk eggs with..
..oil and sugar.
Add the grated zucchini.
In another bowl mix the dry ingredients: flour, cacao powder, bicarbonate, baking powder and bourbon vanilla.
Like so. If you don't have a sifter see to that there aren't any lumps in the cacao powder.
If you do have a sifter use it!
At this stage add the nuts.
Chop them before adding them to the batter.
..like so. Instead of pecans you can use walnuts, pistacchios or hazelnuts.
Grease a tin and add breadcrumbs. Then pour the batter into the cake mold.
Cook in the oven at 175 degrees C for about 45-60 min. depending on your oven.
The recipe comes from this great (Swedish) cookbook "Two Sisters' sweets".
The cake is ready when a tooth pick comes out clean. Let cool inside the tin. Enjoy with a cup of tea or a glass of milk.
