Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

So at the Goswick Family, additionally to our high population of Apricots, we have other veggies and fruits from our trees and garden this year. Unfortuntely for my story, I can't say that we grew the Zucchini squash used in this delicious cake. It's tragic. We have squash bugs. They are evil little devils. My mom and I go outside to the garden to go squash bug hunting. We cut them in half with garden shears. Yes. Pretty graphic. Well, they destroy everything! They've eaten all our pumpkins, zucchini, cucumbers, squash.... We have no sympathy. 

But fortunately for us our best friends, The Wallaces, don't have squash bugs, meaning that we get lots of goodies from them...including beautiful zucchini. So I decided to make a cake. (Zucchini are also a great option to put in pancakes. Chocolate zucchini pancakes...are you kidding me?! DELISH.) 

Look below the photos for the complete recipe.
