Stir in the following:

  • 2 Cups of finely chopped or grated zucchini

Pour batter into a greased and floured bunt pan.

Bake at 350˚F for 40-50 minutes, or until an inserted fork comes out clean.  When cake is slightly cooled, turn out onto serving plate.  Sprinkle cake with powdered sugar.

Chocolate Ganache

Heat the following together until chocolate is melted and well blended

When ganache is prepared, gradually pour over the chocolate zucchini cake.


Note: I think this would be really good without the ganache.
