Grandma Billie’s Moist Chocolate Zucchini Cake has been a staple at birthday parties and potlucks for years. Many is the time we’ve enjoyed the look of surprise on someone’s face when we tell them the sweet and moist cake they are enjoying has zucchini in it.
However, Grandma’s recipe also included lots of sugar and dairy. So this summer, Marlys decided to create a dairy free, refined sugar free version of the moist chocolate zucchini cake we all love.
We think you’ll agree that it’s the perfect way to use up an extra zucchini or two.
