Very moist delicious cake. Changed 350g vegetable oil to 225g organic cold pressed avocado oil for a healthier choice and it came out superb ;-)

Lovely recipe but I cut the oil down to one cup. It was still a very moist cake. Also, to avoid a possibly bitter cake I peeled the green off half of my zucchini. Finally, the batter seemed dry so I let it sit for 10 minutes before pouring into the tin. This gave the zucchini time to release it’s water into the batter then I gave it a final mix and into the tin it went. It turned out delicious.

Excellent moist cake . I replaced one half of the oil with applesauce (three quarter cup applesauce three quarter cup oil and instead of just folding in lightly packed shredded zucchini I folded it in then muxed it at medium speed with my mixmaster for one to two minutes to make the batter. Then I replaced the walnuts with chocolate chips since I do not care for walnuts. Very good when frosted with the Zucchini brownie icing recipe on this site.

Very moist and yummy cake! Only used 1 cup of oil-- that was plenty. Substituted chocolate chips for the nuts. Baked in a bundt pan at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes and dusted with confectioners sugar. Superb!!

Fantastic fudgey, moist cake. I love it for two reasons -- it's versatile and easy, it even works in a high-altitude area, like Denver where I live. I use white whole wheat flour (King Arthur and Wheat Montana sell a white spring kernel variety, which is lighter and sweeter than regular whole wheat, but just as nutritious), and it still tastes like regular chocolate cake. Also, I can trim the fat without it tasting low-fat.I replace 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the oil with applesauce or mashed pear (use a small hole grater on an apple if you don't have any applesauce). I've made this recipe three times now, and when I'm not being health-conscious, I love it with chocolate glaze. I make a quick one with cocoa powder (mix 2 TBS oil, 2 TBS melted butter, 2TBS Karo syrup, 2 tsp vanilla, 6 TBS cocoa powder, 1.5 cups powdered sugar and 1/2 cup milk or more depending on your desired consistency).

Just an update on my review from last year. The cake is still excellent and everyone still loves it, but I wanted to let you know that it is also now a blue ribbon winner! I entered it in the chocolate cake category at our county fair. I frosted it with a vanilla powdered sugar frosting and it took FIRST place. Just thought you would like to know. Thanks a gain for the terrific recipe and new family favorite. P. S. My husband is very finicky about vegetables even when they're in breads or cakes and he really loves this cake.

I made this cake for my friend's birthday party and I copied some of the changes that the other members suggested. I cut the oil to 3/4 cup and added 3/4 cup of apple sauce. And instead of using all, all-purpose flour, I used 1 cup of all-purpose and 1 cup of whole wheat. I also cut the sugar in half because the applesauce is sweet so that would make up for some of the missing sugar and then I added a tsp of vanilla. Anyway, when I brought this cake to my friends birthday party, everybody raved about it! Even my friend who hates all vegetables and fruits LOVED it (she still doesn't know that it was a zucchini cake because I haven't told her yet). AWESOME cake
