Chocolate Zucchini Cake Recipe
I'm always looking for new ways to use zucchini. Little did I know that you could use zucchini to make this delicious chocolate cake!
Trust me, You will not believe how moist and delicious this chocolate zucchini cake is.
Honestly, I think it is the best chocolate cake I have ever made from scratch. The flavor reminds me a chewy brownie with the texture of a fluffy cake. If you love chcocolate cake you owe it to yourself to give this recipe a try!
I made peanut butter frosting for mine but you can use canned vanilla or chocolate frosting or whip up a batch of cream cheese frosting if you prefer.
Chocolate Zucchini Cake Ingredients
I used a small zucchini directly from the garden. This likely affected how moist and fudgy the cake came out. You could use a big, overgown zucchini for this recipe but my experience has been that zucchini bread also comes out better with a youg zucchini.
Some recipes for Chocolate Zucchini Cake use all white sugar. I liked the boost in flavor from the brown sugar.
Likewise, some recipes call for walnuts in the Chocolate Zucchini Cake. I'm sure walnuts would be good, but it is perfectly fine without it.
