This Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe is not only easy but also extra moist, rich, and delicious! Weekend baking? Try out this easy zucchini cake recipe! They say chocolate makes any cake a million times better. I say zucchini and extra egg yolk make any cake extra moist and rich. Every bite of this cake is amazing.

And the recipe is beyond simple. You don’t even have to peel and squeeze out the excess moisture from your zucchini. The peel contains tons of nutrients and fiber too. This means adding zucchini makes the recipe a bit healthier. Once the cake is out of the oven, you can leave it to cool or enjoy it still warm. Either way, it’s delicious. So much to love in this scrumptious chocolate cake! Pair it with a side of cold milk or a cup of coffee and enjoy!

To make the Chocolate Zucchini Cake, you will need the following ingredients:
