 The Moistest Chocolate Cake You’ll Ever Have. I kid you not.
 

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

 

Zucchini

Zucchini are some of the easiest vegetables ever to grow, and they tend to be great producers.  We love it sauted in tomato and paprika sauce, grilled, on kabobs and shredded into cakes and muffins makes for a super moist dessert that everyone loves.  And much like with our Carroty Carrot Cake our Little Helpers could’t believe there was vegetables in it. 

Not that I’m trying to sneak them in or anything… oh no.  Not me.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

It’s pretty hard to resist chocolate cake.  It’s doubly hard to resist chocolate cake peppered with chocolate chips.  Bake this with fresh from the garden zucchini, and you’ve got a win all around.  The zucchini gives this cake it’s super moist texture, and the chocolate chips save the task of icing it.
