Grams Chocolate Zucchini Cake is one of the first recipes I shared when I started my blog… I figured it was time to repost it with a much better photo 🙂
Most people don’t have a clue that there’s any zucchini in this cake… unless you look really close, you can’t even tell. Perfect way to get picky kids to eat vegetables, right?!
I hope your weekend was a lot of fun! I loved having a few extra days to relax with the kiddos and I all having Fall Break, naturally it went way too fast.
