    Redsie's Note:

    Mmmmmmmmmm! Chocolate never tasted so good... and the best thing is this is a light cake! The secret ingredient is... zucchinis!! If you don't mention it - nobody will know!! If you don't have any zucchinis - you can replace by the same amount of carrots. The chocolate icing is delicious! Another wonderful cake from Rose Reisman.

      Very tasty! You hardly taste even the banana....I might add a little more next time. I served mine without the frosting and found it to be just fine w/some powdered sugar. Also, I didn't bother with putting everything in a food processor (didn't have time). It was great just dumped together and mixed w/my mixer!

      I love that this has such healthy ingredients for a cake! It was much more dense than I had anticipated (maybe I was thinking it would be lighter just because of the "light" in the name?). You can really taste the fruit in it (I used fresh pineapple). I had a hard time getting it to bake properly, I had to add 15 mins. Loved the frosting. Overall a good cake, with good ingredients.

      mmmmmmmm... good - What can I say?! this cake is the best. It is moist, chocolatey, fudgey and so good - you can't even tell it's light it tastes so decadent and sinful! It tastes better than many other cakes that are loaded with butter and saturated fat - My family couldn't believe it had all that zucchini in it - this recipe is definitly a keeper. I'll make it again...and again and again! Thank you so much Redsie!
