I love this cake! I used 1/2 cup fat free plain greek yogurt in place of the sour milk. I also sprinkled chopped walnuts along with the chocolate chips on top of the cake before baking it.

This was REALLY delicious!! I did use one mashed banana and nonfat greek yogurt in place of the applesauce (was out of applesauce) and reduced the sugar to 1 cup. It was moist and delicious and everyone really liked it! My kids especially liked the chocolate chips on top. No need for anything else with it! Will be making again! Especially since I have LOTS of zucchini to use up! Thanks for a really good recipe!

This is absolutely yummy! I used whole wheat pastry flour for all the flour and 1 1/2 C. sugar, and received raves from the entire family. It stayed moist for days, too. Thank you for sharing!
