First Zucchini Cake – I love zucchini! I did not know that you can make a cake out of zucchini I wish someone could told me that earlier. I planted few zucchini plants in the spring so I could make my first zucchini cake around fall. I wish I took a picture of my first zucchini it was 1 foot long perfect size for a chocolate zucchini cake. I found this recipe in one of the library’s cookbooks called “Potluck!” by Taste Of Home. My first zucchini cake turned out PERFECT. It was moist and delicious. It was chocolaty and chewy from the broiled coconut topping. My family and friends loved this zucchini cake I am sure you will love it too.
