      This cake made my kitchen (and my car, lol) smell soooo good! I was a little on the fence about the whole chocolate and zucchini thing, but this cake totally eliminated that doubt! I made this in a regular Bundt pan, and it took the full hour to bake. My poor naked zested orange looked so sad sitting on the countertop, so I juiced it and used the fresh squeezed juice in the glaze. I didn't have any walnuts in the house, so I replaced them with chopped pecans. After letting the cake cool in the pan for ~15 minutes, I flipped it onto a cake platter, poked holes all over it with a skewer, and poured the glaze over the still-warm cake so it would soak in instead of drip off. I brought this to work with me to share (hence the heavenly smell in my car), and I think I converted a couple people to zucchini cake lovers with this. Who would've thought that cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon and orange would all play so nicely with zucchini?! Thanks for posting this gem! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8

      Sorry, but I didn't like this cake very much. It needed a much richer chocolate flavor and more orange flavor too.

      Fantastic cake. I baked in 2-8" round pans, and had extra batter to make 6 muffins. The cakes too 50 minutes in the oven and the muffins 20 minutes in the toaster oven. The glaze is wonderful, but makes so much more then I needed. Even cutting it in half, there was excess. I think it would be difficult to make a 1/4 of the glaze recipe thought. :) Thanks Leslie for another wonderful recipe.
