Ruth’s Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

My mother-in-law warned me that her son didn’t like vegetables. He denied it vehemently. He still does. But, I’ve observed the man’s eating habits over the last seventeen years, and I would say that his mother was mostly right.

Her son doesn’t like many vegetables.

But, he does like chocolate bundt cake – with just a touch of powdered sugar. She gave me this recipe years ago so I could sneak some vegetables into his diet. She was a woman who always thought of these kinds of things, long before they were trendy.

Last summer I could not find this recipe when I had a glut of zucchini on hand. But, low and behold, I found it this morning. Yeah! It’s so nice to have recipes to remember her by, though I wish we had her, instead.

    I made the “Our Best Bites” Chocolate Zucchini Bread this weekend…only problem is that my husband knows it was zucchini bread and refuses to even try it! You can’t even tell it’s there, but I can’t convince him to try it. 🙁

  7. I made this today for my guys – didn’t even top it with powdered sugar and they LOVED it. Thank you for a yummy recipe!!

  8. Do you think this would work in a 13×9? I don’t own a bundt pan but it sure looks yummy!
