Sue’s Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
Absolutely the BEST chocolate zucchini cake ever! Very moist! I threw some chocolate chips on top before putting it into the oven. Will definitely make this again! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
I made these as muffins and mini loaves. I lowered the sugar to 1 2/3 cup and still found them quite sweet. I didn’t make the icing.
BEST.CAKE.EVER. The cake is moist and delicious and the frosting is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I followed the directions exactly.
Delicious! Easy! Made into cupcakes. Perfection. Made a ToH cream cheese frosting but so good doesn’t even need any. As volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that use common ingredients and make them shine!
I confess that I only made the cake, as I had frosting to use up in the fridge. The cake is fantastic! Great rise and texture, and lots of chocolate flavor. My zuchinni may have had extra moisture, as I had to bake it 42 min.
I was little nervous as I was reading peoples review while I was making the frosting. I started making it in a blender, but them moved it to my miser before adding the chocolate (looking back it would have been fine in the blender). It turned out perfect!! It's not grainy. I plan to use this frosting revise next time I make brownies. Entire recipe, 5 stars!!!
Very moist recipe. I added 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter. Baked in a springform pan and added extra bake time. 20-25 minutes. I did not use the frosting recipe. This would also make excellent cupcakes! VFE.
Loved this cake, especially since it may have fewer calories than most chocolate cakes. I was skeptical about only a cup of oil, but it had plenty of moisture from the zucchini. I'll probably make it for Christmas since I'm in the mood for a dessert that's not so rich and overly sweet.
Cake 5 stars - Frosting 1 Star...so overall I gave this a 3 Star. I kept reading over and over again on the 1 cup of sugar in the frosting (wanted to use powdered sugar-but the recipe called for sugar). Going only 45 seconds - it was smooth..my fault I did not taste it then or maybe I could have saved it from being grainy - I added the melted ing. and then ran it about 1 minute and was very disapointed on the grainy frosting. I wished I would have came in and read the reviews before I baked this - would have saved me some frustration.
Exceptional Recipe. The best chocolate cake I've ever made. As is, yummy, moist and a hit with the whole family. Thank you!
