Chocolate Zucchini Cake - Food Librarian

Have you been blessed?
No, not in a religious sense (although that is good too!)
But blessed with summer's green log. The zucchini.

Someone "conveniently" leaves them on your porch?
Or did you plant all the seeds in the packet because they so small (really, how many zucchini could result?!)...and now you are "rewarded" with zucchini coming out of, well, you know?

Here's something to do with your gift from the garden. Make King Arthur's Chocolate Zucchini Cake. Em of the Repressed Pastry Chef made this recently and I knew I would be blessed with another zucchini soon, so I quickly bookmarked it. Em made a chocolate ganache topping. Check it out on her blog (and keep reading her blog...she's amazing!)

Chocolate Zucchini Cake - Food Librarian
You don't even taste the zucchini, but you'll benefit from the moistness it imparts. And the frosting is beyond easy. Throw some chocolate chips on top, let it sit & melt, then spread out with a spatula. Sweet.

I love King Arthur's recipes. I just made some great waffles from their website this week.

I think I've seen this cake posted on 4 or 5 different blogs...I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before I just HAVE to bake it!

Yours looks FABULOUS, by the way!

I'm not a huge zucchini fan unless it's in a sweet bread or a cake. This looks amazing! You would never guess there is zucchini in it.

chocolate and zucchini is one of my favorite cakes- yum! I usually bake mine in a bundt though.

I made this recipe last night and unfortunately for me, this did not come out anywhere near cake-like or moist as I would have liked. It was dense and very dry :( I was SO excited to make this cake, too. I'd love to hear if anyone else has had this outcome.

Thanks.

Bookmarked! I love zucchini desserts, and it would be fun to trick someone with this one ("What's the secret ingredient?")

Oh, boy - I just made a zucchini bread that my husband is devouring, but this little number looks like it has my name written all over it!

I went on the hunt a few weeks ago for zucchini recipes and ran in to Em's also. So I made this cake. DELISH! It's a great, moist, chocolate cake!
Love the chips on top of yours.
