Our family absolutely loves zucchini, especially when we grow it ourselves. We’ve found many ways to use it, including this spiced cake that’s super moist and chocolaty good. —Sue Falk, Warren, Michigan
Grated zucchini makes this cake really moist, and the topping adds a nice crunch. When zucchini is in season, I shred, measure and freeze it in 2-cup amounts for this favorite recipe. —Lois M Holben, Creal Springs, Illinois
After managing to lose 40 pounds, Regina Stock likes to keep a number of healthy recipes on hand. "This cake is a favorite morning snack," says the Topeka, Kansas baker. "It even won a blue ribbon at our county fair."
This moist cake combines shredded zucchini, carrots and beets with chocolate chips for a deliciously different dessert. It's a sweet reward for the time you spent weeding and watering your garden.

I received this recipe from my best friend over 10 years ago...and I still get rave reviews whenever I serve it. The zucchini makes it very moist. My husband and I plant grass seed and have a few animals on our farmette here in Lancaster County.
