Yummy Chocolate Zucchini Cake Dessert Recipe

 A lot of work has gone into perfecting this Chocolate Cake recipe for awhile, and I finally think it is perfect!Fist bump emoji🤜

I’m planning to make TWO of these cakes with my children for the upcoming Fathers Day celebration.

One for my soon-to-be husband, AND another one for my ex-husband, the father of our 4 children together.

Dad’s and their children LOVE LOVE chocolate cake, so it’s great to have a good recipe full of nutritious ingredients, without the typical white sugar to be able to make for them once in awhile.Cake emoji 

Use 6-inch pans for a smaller cake, which is a perfect size.Clapping emoji

P.S. Don’t leave out the zucchini…it makes the cake so moist! AND leave the zucchini peel ON for this recipe.
