Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Top Review by JFitz

I have tried different recipes and found that this one is the best! I took another recommendation and used a 9x13" pan using 1/2 cream cheese and 1/2 can of chocolate frosting and everyone really loved the cake. The only difference I made was using the remaining batter and putting it into a loaf pan which I froze to bring out at a later date for Choc. Zucchini loaf. Thanks for a great recipe!
