When I first encountered Clotilde Dusoulier's fabulous Chocolate and Zucchini website, I thought to myself, "How wonderful, the ingredients of my favorite cake!" My grandmother taught me how to bake when I was very young, and later when I was in high school she sent us a recipe pulled from Sunset Magazine for Chocolate and Zucchini Cake. Being adventurous, and knowing how good zucchini bread tastes, I tried it and it quickly became my favorite - the standard against which all future chocolate cakes were measured. The main distinction of this particular cake is its moistness. The zucchini absorbes the cocoa delivering the full flavor of chocoate, but without the heaviness of some other chocolate cakes. Today mom pulled the recipe out of some forgotten folder, still intact from the September 1974 issue of Sunset. I haven't made the cake in over twenty years, but it is still as delicious as I remember it. Here's to you Clotilde! Happy belated Birthday and thank you for the inspiration of Chocolate and Zucchini.
