    tasty. but i think i do prefer a more spice flavored cake when it comes to zucchini and sweet potato... i would omit the cocoa powder next time and put in more cinnamon and nutmeg and ginger probably

    Made this recipe pretty mush as written & had A REALLY WONDERFUL CHOCOLATE CAKE EXPERIENCE! I did include the nuts & chips & used the buckwheat flour! Then, when it came time for the glaze, I used orange juice instead of the water & added 2 rounded teaspoons of orange zest along with the powdered sugar! I left the 'glaze' as a side so you could use it or not, as you liked, & believe me, WE ALL LIKED! Thanks for sharing a really great cake recipe!

    I can't believe I never reviewed this! Doh! Like many other reviewers, I made it (along with a healthed-up Recipe #223785) for my son's first birthday, and it was a smash. From this recipe I got a 9-in round cake and a slew of cupcakes (they were Bob the Tomato and some French Peas, respectively ;>) from it. I know I used some oat flour and ww flour along with AP, and reduced the oil by subbing in some applesauce. I, too, reduced the brown sugar and I used about 1/2 c cherry craisins instead of cherries. I also left out the nuts since I was feeding it to little guys who weren't all in good chewing form LOL. Thanks SO much for posting, Rita. It really was just perfect for my little man's big day!
