Moist dark chocolate cake w/no eggs. NOBODY even guesses it has zucchinni inside! Icing recipe included.
Great when the zucchinni are too large to use in other recipes!

How to Make Chocolate Zucchinni Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Peel and shred zucchinni before adding any wet ingredients.
    I usually use 2 medium sized zucchinni (seeds and all). Larger zucchinni will need seeds removed.
  2. Add wet ingredients in order given. Mixture will be thick.
    Preheat oven to 350- grease a glass 13x9 inch pan
    (zucchinni can react to metal pans. If using metal, please do not store cake in the same pan).
    Bake for 25-35 minutes (use toothpick to test)
  3. Mix icing ingredients and frost cooled cake-
    we have enjoyed this cake at room temperature and cold from the refridgerator- love it both ways!
