Good2bme , 2 years agoTurned out wonderful!!! My husband who doesn't eat veggies couldn't believe it had zucchini in it.
tschoultz , 2 years agoSimply easy and yummy, gone within a day!
msotter , 2 years agoThis was a big hot even after I confessed to the secret ingredient. I did add a little extra zucchini for moisture and made it in a bunt pan with a glaze. It was good enough to serve for company.
Mookie7878 , 2 years agoFantastic cake. I had to double the cooking time though but it was a huge success.
AKLouieG , 2 years agoAdded twice the zucchini and extra vanilla one of the moistest cakes I've made
miskande , 2 years agoDelicious! I finely grated the zucchini and added a hint of nutmeg and it turned out wonderfully! Will be making this again soon.
babybiceps , 2 years agoHad to add water as the mixture was way too thick, to the point where I couldn't even mix it by hand. Added no sugar, enjoyed the bitterness of the cocoa with hint of vanilla!
Michelt , 2 years agoEasy to make, taste great... One of our favorite! If you want a healthier version, just add some crushed walnuts or slice almonds to the mix ;-)
princessa , 2 years agoThe cake tastes well. But I think there is too much of sugar here. I think a teaspoon more than 3/4 cup of sugar would do. Also my cake got burnt within 20 minutes as the baking temperature specified here was 350 degrees. So I had to remove the top layer.
Beklaud , 2 years agoDelicious! Put choc frosting on top but probably didn't need it. Had to cook for 1 hour in my oven.
mimiromanoff , 2 years agoWhat can I say- YUM! Delicious & simple to make :) thank u!
Willoboy12345 , 2 years agoIt's delicious but destroyed the kitchen
NikSout , 3 years agoThis might be the best chocolate cake I've ever eaten. Moist with a beautiful chocolate flavor, not too sweet. Took a little longer for mine to bake but was in no rush and it was well worth the wait!!
2saint , 3 years agoI have a new favorite. This cake was great for me because I am a vegetarian and i don't eat eggs but I love veggies and chocolate. Kids loved it as well.
Bigdapril , 3 years agoSuper yummy! This baked up moist with a slightly dark chocolate taste. Perfect with Nestle's chocolate icing.
Zwg69 , 3 years agoThe cake was moist and delicious without a bit of zucchini taste. Rich chocolate flavor with a hint of vanilla. I followed the advice of some earlier reviews and grated the zucchini very fine. A big hit with the family.
KatTX87 , 3 years agoThe texture was weird, but it worked for a friend who is allergic to eggs dairy and nuts.
Mareejnelson , 3 years agoI made this cake last night as I had heaps of zucchinis in the fridge and wanted to find a way to get my 2 toddlers to eat them. Not only did my toddlers love it, but my husband (who is not a fan of cakes in general) just had a taste and said that it's the best cake I've ever made! He has already requested I make another one and said he'll be on the lookout for zucchinis on our next shopping trip! A winner of a recipe!
