Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bundt CakeHave you been blessed like we have with an abundance of zucchini this year?  Our garden has provided, along with friends and family.  I have enjoyed all the recipes being shared by friends on Facebook and Pinterest.  Traditionally, I make Zucchini Bread each season…usually more than once.  This year, I went outside my comfort zone and experimented with other recipes that included a main ingredient of zucchini.  One such recipe for Zucchini Lasagna, shared with me by my daughter-in-law, is pinned to make very soon.  According to Angela…it’s delicious.

Two very special friends just had birthdays and I chose to make them this Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bundt Cake.  I remembered I had pinned a recipe for a Chocolate Zucchini Cake from a favorite blog I follow on a regular basis…Cookies & Cups. The only changes I made were the cake pan, baking pan and name of recipe.  Make sure you make note of the revised baking time. I loved the results and hope you do too!  Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bundt Cake

      Thank you Jami! We do love this cake and everything made with zucchini! We had an abundance of it in our garden this year. I have lots in the freezer. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I hope you’ll stop in again soon!!

  9. Yum! Love the pictures & the recipe! (I don’t eat dairy but I can easily sub ingredients!) Unfortunately, my garden gave me just 1 zucchini this year. Just 1. But I can’t complain too much because we’ve been blessed with lots of yummy tomatoes! Now if only I could make a cake with tomatoes…

    Love your site!
