- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp espresso powder

Preparation time 25mins
Cooking time 60mins
Preheat oven to 350. Greast a 9-inch square metal baking pan and line the bottom with parchment; grease the parchment.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, espresso and salt. Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar, eggs and egg whites at medium-high speed until pale in color, about 3 minutes; whisk in the olive oil. Stir in the zucchini. Stir in the flour mixture and 1 container yogurt alternately in 2 batches. Transfer to the prepared pan.
Bake until springy to the touch and a cake tester comes out with moist crumbs, about 35 minutes; let cool slightly. Serve warm with the remaining yogurt.
