Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Best chocolate zucchini cake

I'm up to my ears in zucchini-but I'm not complaining one bit! I love it about any way you can cook it and I swear raw zucchini isn't bad either.

I shared this chocolate zucchini cake recipe with you a few years ago-but I think it's good enough to share again. It's so easy to make-you don't even need to drag your mixer out-and the taste will make you wish you were up to your ears in zucchini too!

You could ice the cake with your favorite icing-but a glass of cold milk goes perfectly with it.

Ever had chocolate zucchini cake before?

This sounds great. I'm actually going to try some Zucchini jam.

I love zucchini too. I love to make zucchini bread, oooh it's so good! I also love squash casserole Which uses zucchini and yellow squash. I know i would love this cake!

Gonna make this one for sure! Thanks Tipper for sharing the recipe !! 😊

That looks delicious, although I've
never tasted zucchini chocolate
cake before. I bet it's not too
sweet like those storebought cakes.
The texture looks like my brownies
with crushed black walnuts...Ken

. . .and I paid fifty-six cents for one very small (6" long) zuke at the grocery store yesterday. Sigh. They grow well in New Mexico, but I don't have enough sun in my garden for vegetables. I have one potted tomato plant that wimps along and produces a few tomatoes.
HOWEVER, we have a Saturday farmers' market beginning July 11 and running until October! So -- this time next week I'll have all the zucchini and tomatoes I can eat!

I love zucchini cake/bread, but I have had a chocolate one. This looks so scrumptous that my mouth is just watering. Yummy!

Reminds of Lewis Grizzard writing that the reason country people lock their cars in summer is to keep people from putting zucchini in them. 😊 Sounds like you may need Zucchini Friends.

Looks wonderful! I canned some of your zucchini to use cooking this winter.
I have zucchini chips on my mind. Is that one of your recipes? If not then I don't know where I got the idea.

That chocolate cake looks delicious. There are so many ways to use zucchini. I have so many options I cannot grow enough. I like to substitute an apple for the same amount of zucchini (half of each) in Zucchini bread...wonderful taste and just as good frozen for a fast treat. Those zoodle makers make wonderful noodles to replace pasta.
