We finally used up all but one of our zucchini squash today. My mother-in-law sent me a recipe over a month ago for chocolate zucchini cake, and my daughter and I took some time this morning to try it out.
All you need are a boxed chocolate cake mix, an instant chocolate pudding mix, and 3 cups of shredded raw zucchini.
Once you get that mixed up, you just pour it in your floured/greased cake pans and bake for about 30 minutes.
Once the cake has cooled sufficiently, and you are ready to frost it, simply whisk together a can of chocolate frosting and a container of cool whip.
The end result is this slightly-flatter-than-normal moist chocolate cake with a chocolate whipped frosting. I had to add a few green and pink confetti candies to mine since I'm feeling especially preppy these days. Can't wait to taste it after dinner tonight.
