Chocolate Zucchini Cake

We made this recipe yesterday afternoon. It is a recipe my aunt gave me a few years ago when I visited her.

It was delicious then, it's delicious now. And the best part was the fun of sharing some of it with special friends and a good neighbour!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

  1. Why y'all gotta mess up that cake by putting vegetables in it?
