I love baking with zucchini! It’s nice to add a healthy element to a treat, especially when no one can even tell! I made this amazing Zucchini Cake for my family party and it was gone within minutes! Only 1 person even noticed there was zucchini in it. You seriously almost can not tell at all. But it makes it super moist which is always a good thing!
This cake is a little different than most cakes and in a really good way! The texture is more brownie like than cake-y and I love that. As you bite into it you get a little chocolate crunch from the chocolate chips you add in it. And the frosting is amazing! It’s not really even frosting it’s just a layer of melted chocolate chips. I love how it hardens and so you get the slight hard crunch as you bite into the cake. This cake is for sure one of my go-to birthday cakes now. Mmm!
*Note- It can be difficult to get a smooth finish icing the cake with just the chocolate chips. If you want a nice smooth finish you can melt 1 1/3 cup chocolate chips in the microwave or the stove-top along with 7 tablespoons half and half. Stir until smooth and spread over the completely cooled cake.
