Chocolate Zucchini Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by newmama

This cake is moist and fudgy, a great way to use up some of your summer zucchini. Would also be good with chocolate ganache, a thin white icing or glaze or even just sprinkled with chocolate chips while hot. *i used hershey's special dark cocoa- it's a mix of dutch and regular unsweetened so i think either would work here
