Yumm, I have my own Choc zucchini cake recipe, (looks very similar) that i will be making to take out when we stay at the batch next week. It keeps so well. I've been saving up my zucchinis for a few days but now they are coming thick and fast and i'll be over run with them soon

I am over run with zucchinis - dumb question - do you peel first or just shred?

Just shred coralsnake, no need to peel.

I make Zucchini muffins regularly & I grated & froze some last year, to cope with the glut. They defrost quite wet but I just squeeze out the liquid & it works just fine.

I make a Chocolate Zucchini cake too, very dark and moist, almost like a mudcake without all the eggs. I'm getting through my Zucchini supply this year by making Zucchini noodles instead of having noodles or pasta, my Granddaughter loves them that way. I bought a cheapy spiralizer from Kmart which works great and didn't break the bank. Makes good vege spirals for adding to my salads too, love having beetroot that way.

One of Simon and Alison Holst's Slow cooker books has a Chocolate Zucchini cake recipe I keep meaning to try.
