Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Last year someone from church gave us some zucchini from their garden. I was grateful but unsure what to do with it. My sister happened to have recently gotten this recipe from her boyfriend's mom and suggested I try it. I did and we enjoyed it so this year, when we were once again gifted with zucchini I pulled it out to try once more. It's official, we've decided this is our go-to recipe for zucchini.
This is a delicious chocolate cake with a slight nuttiness added from the zucchini. The texture is not affected negatively, in the least, and unless examined carefully the zucchini might just pass by unnoticed {if you're trying to use up zucchini without anyone knowing it!}
