Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I don't have a craft update for this week (yet) so I thought I'd put in another delicious Mom recipe.  Chocolate zucchini cake is a mix between bread and cake.  The consistency is cake-like but the taste is like chocolate zucchini bread. Very tasty, recommended for all ages. Perhaps when I make some in the future I'll post a picture of it also. I would also like to wish my oldest (but not old) sister a happy birthday! I miss you Kimb!
