Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

I have got a treat for you today! This chocolate chip zucchini cake is the perfect way to use up any extra zucchini you have laying around. I tore this recipe out of a Penzey’s magazine forever ago and almost forgot about it. But last week when I neglected to check our garden for a few days, leading to the discovery of a couple very large (huge!) zucchini, I suddenly remembered this cake. I’ve combined chocolate and zucchini together before with great results, and so had very high hopes for this recipe. And it did not disappoint! This chocolate chip zucchini cake is completely delicious. It is moist and chocolatey and has lots of melty chocolate chips throughout the whole thing. And of course you can’t taste the zucchini at all, which is just fine by me. :) We loved this cake and I’m pretty sure you will too. Enjoy!
