So, how many zucchini breads have you made lately? Too many? If you don't know what to do with all that zucchini that's coming out of your garden right now, how about zucchini + chocolate? Great combination, really. This cake uses quite a bit of grated zucchini, which keeps it moist and absolutely delicious, but you can't really tell there is zucchini in the cake. Ask my kids.
Before I get on with the cake, I wanted to thank Saveur for the nice surprise this past week in being featured on Saveur's "Best of the Web". They featured my post on Marcella Hazan's Roman Style Artichokes. If you are not a regular reader of the magazine, check out their web site. It's very good and has all kinds of great content.
