Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Welcome to one of my favorite cake recipes of all time.

If you’re a health nut, I’m so sorry… click on this link full of health to take you away from the temptation of a sugar-and-chocolate-chip-sprinkled cake. A moist cake. A chocolatey cake. A delicious cake. (Ya still with me? I thought so.)

This is a family favorite… you can make this when you have homegrown zucchini coming out of your ears, or when you family cleans the freezer and finds several bags of frozen zucchini. Either situation is a good excuse to make this cake.

If you use frozen zucchini in this recipe, don’t drain it after thawing. The batter might look too soupy and kind of scary, but don’t worry. It all works out.

  1. My absolute favorite cake is a zucchini cake! But it doesn’t have chocolate: it’s more buttery, with a cream cheese frosting. πŸ™‚ It is very good! This one looks delicious too!
