Chocolate Zucchini Cake (The Best)

My mother in law made the best desserts. Butter and sugar in large amounts and a healthy dose of chocolate. Delicious.

My beautiful mother in law went to be with Jesus two years ago. We are so thankful she is now whole and free from a failing body. We miss her very much.

This time of year my in-law’s garden would be teeming with bounty including the largest zucchinis ever. This dessert would surface as a sweet way to use the bounty.

While I am in the process of revamping the recipe to accommodate our current dietary needs I thought I would share the classic recipe:
