    Amazingly moist and rich, and not too difficult. I must have made it 10 times this summer and fall and given giant pieces away to my friend, who all loved it.

    Great taste, great texture, and easy to make! I had to make some substitutions because of what I had on hand: olive oil rather than vegetable, exchanged one cup of the all-purpose for wheat flour, bittersweet and semisweet chocolate for the unsweetened, and used walnuts rather than pecans. Yet it still turned out great! Next time I'll look for something similar with less oil and sugar though.

    VERY yum. Quite moist. Easy to prepare. I would make it again for 'every day' snacking or for special occassion or bake sale. I made a chocolate/coffee glaze instead of sprinkling with powdered sugar, which increased the caloric count, but really added richness too. Didn't chop the nuts because one son doesn't like nuts and could pick them out easier ;-). I don't think it effected the cake. Can't wait to have another slice...

    I tried this recipe for the first time and LOVED it! My 1 and 2 year old loved it since i told them it was chocolate cake! I'm definitely keeping this as a family favorite!

    Great cake! Very moist and great way to sneak in zucchini, but not quite as healthy as everyone thinks. The three cups of sugar do not balance out the zucchini.

    Moist, flavorful with a satisfying hint of crunch. Would have gotten 5 stars if it had been a lower calorie count. I brought it to a girls' soccer dinner and it was well-received--UNTIL I told them that they were also eating a good portion of zucchini with their dessert. :)

    I served this as part of a "Summer Bounty" theme dinner. When asked how this fit into the theme, people were SHOCKED to find there was zucchini in it! Very clever way to add fiber and veggies to kids. Love it.

    I love this cake. It is so moist and flavorful. Everyone is surprised to learn it has 3 cups of zucchini in it. I have made several of them this summer from my own home-grown zucchini. Yummy!
