    Diana #2's Note:

    I've been making this recipe for ions now. It was a collaboration between myself and a friend about 25 years ago. I haven't found one I like better. I hope you will agree. These loaves also freeze very well. Note: You could try using applesauce for some or all of the oil in order to reduce the fat content. However....I haven't tried it myself.

      O my goodness this chocolate cake is to die for. Ok, so I messed up a little because I used coarse salt instead of fine, but it still has a great flavour. I replaced the raisins with chocolate chips and took away 1/4 cup of white sugar in favour of a bit more cocoa powder because I looooove chocolate. For my nuts I used a combination of hazelnuts, almonds, and coconut. Will definitely try again!

      Made this last night because a neighbor keeps giving my zucchini's and they are all like 3 lbs each so I have been making everything I can but I never make a cake so I thought I'd give it a try.
      The only changes I made were with the cocoa which I used Dark cocoa and I didn't have maple extract so I used Almond as well as Almond nuts. I did sprinkle some powder sugar on top. It was very good, and my husband liked it so much I had to stop him for eating the entire thing. Thanks for sharing!

      I'm so sorry Diana - I can't give this 5 stars - I have to give it 20 STARS!!! Oh my oh my this is a fabulous recipe!! I had a huge zucchini and it made the 2 cups needed easily. This is so moist, so full of flavor and the kids had no idea there was zucchini in it. The only downfall is it only makes 2 loaves - we definitely needed 4 the way they were gobbling it up each day. I loved that I could pack a nice slice in their lunches and it was not crumbs at lunchtime but still a nice slice. I did skip out on the raisins (kids just don't like them) and next time (very soon!) I'm going to add some chocolate chunks in place of the raisins. Absolutely the BEST chocolate zucchini loaf I've ever made. Thanks so much for sharing!!
