I thought it was time for the BEST chocolate cake recipe ever!  I'm not kidding...this is TO DIE FOR!!!  As you can see, it is moist beyond compare.  It has DELICIOUS flavor and has two secret ingredients! It is 100% whole wheat AND has 3 WHOLE CUPS OF ZUCCHINI!  Yep, its zucchini cake that your family will  NEVER recognize as zucchini cake!  My husband raved about this cake and I waited until he was done to tell him about the zucchini.  I said, "you know, veggies are great when you learn how to cook with them in a way your family loves." He said, "This is my FAVORITE way to eat zucchini!"  So, here it is Zucchini Cake/Cupcakes!
