Chocolate Zucchini Cake is a delicious treat that is undeniably good. Most people would think that any kind of cake that has a vegetable in it just can not be tasty but they would be wrong. Zucchini is a very mellow vegetable so it has little to no inherent taste. Chocolate, on the other hand, has a very strong flavor. The combination of the two flavors will make an amazing chocolatey cake that has no taste of zucchini. The purpose of the zucchini is just to make the cake moist and a little gooey and it does this perfectly.
An extra upside of Chocolate Zucchini Cake is for when moms call home to see what vegetables are being eaten, to ensure a nutritious diet is being followed. All a mom needs to know is that you ate zucchini, they do not need to know that the zucchini was inside of a cake when it was being consumed.
So anyone looking for a tasty treat and trying to convince their mom that they are eating healthily, without actually doing it, should simply make a Chocolate Zucchini Cake. This cake is incredibly good when shared with friends but it is also excellent when hoarded away and kept for just one person.
