Very moist zucchini cake with a nice aroma of rum. The cake has little surprises of chocolate and walnuts spread throughout it.
This cake is very tasty and stays moist without having a heap of butter. I didn't use the walnuts as my husband is allergic but still tastes great. First time I made this I used choc buttons but they were too heavy and sank to the bottom. I then used choc chips but they just disappeared in the cake. Finally I used choc drops and they were best. I quite like the rum icing but cake is also nice without it or just plain icing. - 18 Apr 2015
We all loved this. I used 1/2 c rum in the cake because of the other reviews that said you could not taste it with the 1/3. We enjoyed it. I thought the glaze was going to be too strong when I first made it but it mellowed nicely overnight. - 15 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The zucchini does make this a very moist cake. It is very tasty as chocolate cakes go. The rum in the cake itself is pretty much undetectible, but in the glaze it is overpowering. Next time I would skip the glaze and just dust with powdered sugar. - 05 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
