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?

I believe that zucchini is the Bubba Shrimp of the dry land world...meaning you can fix it so many ways. I love zucchini cake...chocolate and plain...zucchini bread plain, or with bananas or with black walnuts or both! ha Fried, sautéed, boiled, baked, casseroled, pickled, dipping sticks or diced in salads. One could eat this vegetable many ways...I have even ground it up in my spaghetti sauce with my tomatoes adds nutrition and no little "curtain climber" that hates vegetables but loves spaghetti and pastas never knows! Ha
Thanks for this is different from mind so I will be trying yours...
Our zucchini got mildew early and I didn't get many this year, but have access to good zucchini...usually someone has a lot of it to share...and glad for it not to go to waste...I froze some grated just for bread and cakes this winter with my first overrun before the plants gave up the ghost!

Looks mighty tasty!

Wher yuns at anyway? I'll teach you to run off without tellin nobody!

Tipper, is there a way to print this recipe, I definitely want to make this and having a printed copy is so helpful. Thanks and it looks delicious ,

Looks good enough to eat!

I never had Chocolate Zucchini Cake before, especially with Honey. It looks awfully good. And I met Chitter on Sunday at the JCCFS parking lot to pick up some Necklaces for two of my
grandchildren. The Deer Hunter had picked several home-grown tomatoes and Tipper fixed a 1/2 pint of Grape Jelly. Boy, was I Thankful, and Surprised. Bet you can guess what I'll be doing today... ...Ken

Yes, chocolate zucchini cake is good. Got to try it for the first time when in Wyoming for a hunt. The ranching family had made one to share with hunters.

Looks delicious! We have no zucchini this year and our yellow squash hasn't produced well either. I'm thinking of trying to plant some of each for a fall harvest.

All the ingredients are on hand except the zucchini. I don't know what happened to my plants this year. Being up to my ears was always a welcome sight in previous years because every one of my grandsons could eat their weight in fried zucchini rolled in fish fry breading and sprinkled with garlic salt.
I made the cake the last time you shared the recipe. It was delicious, easy to make and super moist.

I too have been blessed with an abundance of squash this year :) This is perfect timing for me on this recipe, thank you!!

Off topic, but I remember reading somewhere about a pine tree that a young man planted and as an adult they built by the tree? Billy Turpin??? Blue Ridge GA area? If you could help my memory along I would greatly appreciate it, thanks all!!
Many blessing on the day!

Now if I were rested, I would try this exciting and beautiful recipt. But we were on NC highways all weekend, so I must rest! You would not believe the road work that is being done in Lecester and at the 'edge' of Asheville! But at our luncheon, I met a 'road man' who had worked on building the DAM for our lake over in Clay County during the 40's. He couldn't believe I had seen that building of the Chatuge Dam! Eva Nell

I think I've had zucchini cake but I don't think I've had THIS zucchini cake before. I love how a primary vegetable can become a divine primary desert! I remember the first time I ever heard of carrot cake. I thought "what, no, that can't be!" Well it can be. So, I guess sugar is the great transformer. I've always had a fondness for sugar.
When I was a little girl, a long time ago, my dentist ordered my family to take me off all sugar because my teeth were so bad. After stealing a candy bar from the grocery store and eating all the sugar out of the sugar bowl at a friends house they gave up the sugar ban as a lost cause. I still have a fondness for sweet things! LOL!
