Chocolate Spice Zucchini Mini-Bundt Cakes

Susan Bickta


This recipe is a great way to use the abundance of zucchini from your garden. It's light, moist and decandent. The chocolate and spices are the perfect combination. I always make extra cakes and freeze them to give as gifts at Christmas. They make a great addition to my food baskets that I give as gifts.
