"This is a moist fudgy type cake. Sweet but not extremely sweet and makes good use of zucchini! You can frost it with chocolate frosting or cream cheese icing."

Excellent moist cake . I replaced one half of the oil with applesauce (three quarter cup applesauce three quarter cup oil and instead of just folding in lightly packed shredded zucchini I folded it in then muxed it at medium speed with my mixmaster for one to two minutes to make the batter. Then I replaced the walnuts with chocolate chips since I do not care for walnuts. Very good when frosted with the Zucchini brownie icing recipe on this site.

Very moist and yummy cake! Only used 1 cup of oil-- that was plenty. Substituted chocolate chips for the nuts. Baked in a bundt pan at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes and dusted with confectioners sugar. Superb!!

Fantastic fudgey, moist cake. I love it for two reasons -- it's versatile and easy, it even works in a high-altitude area, like Denver where I live. I use white whole wheat flour (King Arthur and Wheat Montana sell a white spring kernel variety, which is lighter and sweeter than regular whole wheat, but just as nutritious), and it still tastes like regular chocolate cake. Also, I can trim the fat without it tasting low-fat.I replace 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the oil with applesauce or mashed pear (use a small hole grater on an apple if you don't have any applesauce). I've made this recipe three times now, and when I'm not being health-conscious, I love it with chocolate glaze. I make a quick one with cocoa powder (mix 2 TBS oil, 2 TBS melted butter, 2TBS Karo syrup, 2 tsp vanilla, 6 TBS cocoa powder, 1.5 cups powdered sugar and 1/2 cup milk or more depending on your desired consistency).
