Reviews forZucchini Chip Chocolate Cake
"Delicious cake!! Definitely a keeper!"
"Excellent! Followed the recipe with no changes and it was a family hit. Definitely will make again."
"Very moist! I added chocolate frosting and my kids loved it!"
"I live at a high altitude, and this cake was still very moist. I made some substitutions, and it still turned out yummy. For the flour, I used about half regular flour and half whole wheat flour. Instead of butter I used unrefined coconut oil. I used some coconut sugar along with the white sugar. I'll make it again, for sure!"
"very moist. I goofed and put in a bit extra cocoa- but it was yummy. I really like th texture and flavor. Now I did go a bit over the top and turned mine into a Mud cake by adding 1 1/2 mini mashmallows on top of the hot cake and putting back in the oven for acouple min, Then when cooled- made a chocolate sour cream icing (half batch)- but the cake is good on it';s own so next time will just stick with the cake"
"best zucchini recipe I have ever tried. My husband and friends say this is a keeper for sure!"
"Moist and delicious. Excellent recipe."
