      I thought that I may have trouble getting the peskies (aged 6 and 8) to eat it when they spotted the green flecks of zucchini ( despite the fact that I grated them on my microplane to get them ultra fine!)...but when I owned up to the fact that it was zucchini, they just shrugged and said that they couldn't taste it...phew!<br/>A deliciously moist and tasty cake, and with added veggies I don't feel quite so bad about eating that second slice!!<br/>Made for AUS/NZ RECIPE SWAP#76.

      So after using this recipe literally about twenty times I decided to register for a recipezaar account just so that I can review it... I LOVE THIS RECIPE! It is so moist and flavourful. I'm not really a fan of chocolate cake so I tend to make it without the cocoa, making it a Courgette AND Chocolate cake, and adding a tablespoon of icing sugar to compensate for the loss of 1/4 cup of dry ingredients. It does make it slightly sweeter, but because I like 72% chocolate chopped up in this cake it more than counteracts the icing sugar. I also use 2tsp mixed spice, and 2tsp vanilla because Iove them! And I top with a LOT of cream cheese icing because really, cake is just an excuse to eat icing!

      A great tasting cake enjoyed by all of us tonight. I also sprinkled the chocolate pieces on top, never had a cake with zucchini in it., what a nice different change. Came out beatuful, and we cooked it for 45 minutes as stated. No adjustments were made here, and I dont see any adjustments for this at all. A definate keeper. Made for Auz/nz swap #30.
