"This is a very moist and chocolatey cake. It is best warm with whipped cream on top, and it reheats well." — H Sankey

2 1/2 cups

distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 cups
This cake was irresitable right out of the oven!!! Couldn't keep my fork away.....very moist....I used milk choc chips, didn't need anything else....no whip cream or ice cream....plain with a large glass of milk....delish!!!
The consistency was mealey and way too dense. Not sure what I did wrong.
Good recipe as written. Made this yesterday, and even tho I lacked the choc chips and my measurements weren't spot-on, it came out great. Pressed and squeezed the moisture from my zucchini very well before using. Made it into two 8X8 pans so I could share it and the amount worked fine. Hubby and I had it with some Turkey Hill special chocolate flavor ice cream - Yum!
Exceptionally good zucchini cake. I used both green and yellow zucchini and put the chips on top. Very good.
Really good. I did increase the cocoa powder by 50%, used far less chocolate chips (a full cup was way too much for me, and next time I might use mini chocolate chips instead) and replaced both the oil and butter with unsweetened applesauce, and it turned out delicious and moist! Very satisfying for chocoholic health nuts like me. :) And a great way to sneak in a little extra veggie intake! I'm not sure why one reviewer squeezed the moisture out of his/her zucchini, because generally when you bake with zucchini the idea is that the vegetable provides some necessary moisture to the finished product so you DON'T want to press it...but I guess it depends on your moisture preference. I would recommend not squeezing your zucchini though, whether you're making this recipe or brownies or zucchini bread, but then again I love moist cakes/brownies/breads!
I loved the fact that the chocolate disguises the zucchini. Although I am a huge chocolate lover, the next time I will cut the chocolate chips down. The cake is so moist and full of chocolate flavor that the chocolate chips made some areas of cake too "moist", like big area of melted chips. I think adding nuts to this would be a good idea.
