Quick Zucchini Cake (Made With a Cake Mix)

I had a large zucchini and wanted to make a quick dessert. I used what I had in my cupboard. My sons really liked this even without icing. You could frost it with a cream cheese or vanilla frosting.

    Where did you ever find a German chocolate cake mix in a box with 18 1/2 oz and the instant chocolate pudding box with 4 1/2 oz.

    It's delicious!! I had a Devils' food cake mix (not German chocolate) so that's what I used. I didn't have chocolate instant pudding so I substituted vanilla. Didn't have pecans so substituted walnuts. And someone suggested adding a teaspoon of cinnamon so I did that, too. Otherwise I followed the directions. LOL. Easy-peezy and delicious! No frosting or any other topping needed but if you want, try Cool Whip or ice cream. It's moist, like a cake style brownie, almost. Definitely going to be making this more often. People also suggested using other flavors of cake mix, like orange or lemon. I'd try those, for sure. Or spice. I debated using the coconut cream pudding I had on hand and throwing in some flaked coconut instead of the walnuts, but didn't this time. If I used a German chocolate cake mix, I would. I'm giving it 5 stars.

    I only had a red velvet cake mix, added a dash of salt and 1/2 cup dark brown sugar plus 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder and melted butter instead of oil. Did not add nuts or chips. The pudding mix really fluffed up the batter. As much as i changed the recipe it turned out REALLY tasty. I bet it would be good with a lemon or strawberry cake mix and packet of vanilla or white chocolate pudding. Thanks for sharing ! :-)
