Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Are you drowning in Zucchini like us?  Today I am sharing one of the munchkins favorite recipes this summer.  A new Chocolate Zucchini cake recipe.


We found this recipe while searching for a recipe that didn’t call for buttermilk since we didn’t have any around.  Lucky for us we stumbled on this chocolate rendition and it is wonderful.  Super moist and delicious!
