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.
