Chocolate Cinnamon Zucchini Cake – The Last Zucchini Cake Recipe You’ll Ever Need

Chocoalte Cinnamon Zucchini Cake - the most moist and flavorful zucchini cake ever!

This Chocolate Cinnamon Zucchini Cake has to be the best Zucchini Cake I have ever had! The cake itself was so moist, and the frosting just makes the whole thing melt in your mouth. The only problem I found with the cake was that it was difficult to stop at one piece! With the overload of zucchini we get from my mom’s garden every year, this will be my go-to dessert recipe!! Shoot, my mouth is watering just thinking about it now!
