Oh my........ this is a chocolate-a-holic's dream! These brownies are rich and delicious. A bit dry but the icing more than compensates for the dryness. That icing is amazing!!! I will be making these again, for sure!!

Glad I made only one half recipe. We did not like this at all. I will not make this again.

Would definitely call this a cake. It turned out fine but the peanut butter frosting is just wrong for this! I love pb and chocolate (even ate it as I was scarping it off!) but it was wrong for this cake.

Turned out cake-like as others state, (I prefer Brownie texture). Frosting is delicious. It was difficult to spread thin enough to cover 13 x 9. Good if you enjoy cake, zucchini is not detected :), and frosting is yummy but should be doubled!

I definitely agree with the other reviewers, this is much more of a cake consistency than a brownie. However, it is a fantastic cake. The frosting is what makes it different from the usual chocolate zucchini cake. It's simple, but very rich. Perfect mix of sweet and peanuty chocolate goodness!

I was expecting Brownies and I got cake. I found an after taste of 'soda'. In general it was OK but I have had better cake made with zucchini. I won't be making this again.

I've made these several times. More like a snack cake that a brownie, but delicious!
