I happened upon this recipe on What Geeks Eat. I modified the recipe a little. I only used the brown sugar - in the original amount, left out the white sugar completely, added 1/2 cup of water, cooked it in a 13x9 pan for 30 minutes. I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa, so it is a really deep and dark chocolaty cake.

This is incredible - you have GOT to try it! I can't believe how moist it is with only one stick of butter for a 13x9 cake. Obviously it's the zucchini that adds the moisture. The batter was extremely thick, so I added 1/2 cup water to the mix.

(click to enlarge to see the moistness!)

I'm a very messy baker/chef (heck, I'm just messy period!!)and I only used two bowls and a few measuring cups/spoons. In order to give my DH a break, I hand washed the dishes myself. Poor guy - he's been having back pain for over a week. I know it's bad when he stops running to try and feel better - he's even mention the "D" word (DOCTOR!!)

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get to the Farmer's Market to get fruit for this week's TWD.

That looks amazingly good! Zucchini hmmm...I may have to try it. You might also want to try it with pumpkin puree, it's got fiber and the yummy chocolate overpowers any veggie taste.
