This is a great, very easy chocolate cake. The zucchini makes it very moist. I tried it with a chocolate rum frosting, but the cake itself is so chocolately I'll try cream cheese frosting next time to balance it out.
Delicious! I cut the sugar in half, used half whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup pear puree for the oil. Oh yeah, and used 1/2 cup cocoa. Definitely better the next morning. I would up the sugar if I was taking it somewhere to share with others, but this was a nice not too sweet version for snacking on at home.
This is a very very good recipe. The modifications I did were 1/2 oil 1/2 applesauce, upped the cocoa to 10 Tablespoons and used half white flour/half white whole wheat flour. It also seemed like it got darker, moister, richer, and more tastier with each passing day! So by day 5, it was totally AWESOME!!! If making for a get together, I would advise making it a few days in advance for the most robust flavor. Enjoy
