Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Recipe by UnknownChef86

A delicious, moist chocolate cake. I got this recipe at the public library when I was 8 years old. A library patron with a zucchini surplus had left a pile of zucchini with a selection of zucchini recipes, free for the taking. I helped myself to a zucchini and copied out this recipe. It quickly became a family favourite.

H2B devoured this! I love that it wasn't a fussy recipe! I made it bundt style and used 3 egg whites and about 1 1/4 cups sugar, then added in about 1/2 cup of semi-sweet morsels! This was delicious and I will be making it over and over again!
