Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake | My Simple Kitchen

My dad keeps bringing us zucchini and I keep baking with it. I love having fresh, local fruits and veggies available.  Every spring I say I want to start a garden but I haven’t made the jump.  The idea of walking into my backyard to get ingredients for dinner sounds amazing! The problem is, I’ve been known to kill a plant or two.  My husband is the only reason my flower baskets last as long as they do every year.  I have a serious problem with the whole remember to water thing.  Oh well, at least I have an amazing dad to keep my fridge stocked!  

I’m really excited to share this recipe with you. It is such an easy one and tastes fabulous! The cream cheese frosting pairs perfectly with the zucchini cake.

      Zucchini is taking over my dad’s garden and too many are going to the chickens because none of us can keep up with them! Can’t wait until you get to try it.

    This looks fantastic! Just the other day, I was wondering to myself why carrot cake is a common dessert/cake, but zucchini are usually baked as muffins or loaves and called “bread”…maybe if more people tried your zucchini cake, things would change! That frosting looks so tempting…
