    This cake is too dense, and the consistency is weird. I make a cake with cake mix and mashed bananas, and that recipe requires a teaspoon of baking soda. Perhaps baking soda is what this recipe needs to fix the density issue. Sorry I will not waste zucchini and pudding mix in this recipe again.

    Yum this cake was chocolately, dense, and delicious! Everyone loved it. In case anyone is apprehensive about the zucchini in it, you cannot taste it or tell. I hadn't used the cool whip frosting before and loved that too. Lots of people in my family don't like regular frosting but this was just right. It is also incredibly easy to work with. The only downside is that b/c of the frosting it has to be refrigerated. But I'll happily shove stuff over to make room for any leftovers!
