CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI CAKE

CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI CAKE

This chocolate zucchini cake is so good and gives you another way to use some of that zucchini.  This is good with or without the frosting but I think the more chocolate the better.  The frosting just completes how good this cake really is. It won’t last long! My family loves this cake and I make it a lot whenever I have zucchini on hand.  You might also like our recipe for sour cream zucchini brownies.
