"This cake was ok. The cloves are way too overpowering and it's all that you taste. It's a very greasy cake too. I've never made a cake that leaves a grease mark on a paper plate like pizza does. There are far better chocolate zucchini cake recipes out there."

"This was a ok cake, not what i expecting. I was looking for a cake with more chocolate flavor, so if you want a chocolatey cake I would suggest finding a different recipe."
