chocolate zucchini cake with sugar cinnamon sauce

This is a recipe from a church recipe booklet that my great aunt gave me for my first anniversary in 1984. It is very good and simple to make.
The sauce I just now made up. I tinkered with the amounts till it looked right and tasted ok to me LOl So I hope some of you will like this topping.
