Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yum this cake was chocolately, dense, and delicious! 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This cake is too dense, and the consistency is weird. 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.

I've used this recipe for years, and have taken the liberty of being creative... pairing different flavors of cake mix with complimentary flavors of pudding mix, adding complimentary flavor of nuts and flavorings. Pistachio pudding makes for a fun green tint for Christmas or St Patrick's day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just a hint to those of you who did NOT like this------HOMEMADE (scratch) chocolate zucchini cake is really good------and chocolate zucchini bread is really yummy (use the --bisquick banana bread recipe, and substitute grated zucchini---add 2T sugar and 1/4 cup of cocoa)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chocolate Zucchini Cake I made this recipe yesterday. Good flavor but I did not care for the consistency as it was more like a lava cake, wet and dense. Tester showed it was done and cake fell later! I never had this problem before. Was it too much zucchini, was it the pudding or the type of cake mix I purchased as it was a "moist" mix?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from nothing healthy except for zucchini Why do most of your recipes contain "boxed" items (like boxed cake mix and boxed pudding mix, etc) vs. homemade from scratch ingredients (like flour, etc)? I like the idea of your recipe but do not like the fact that you use boxed ingredients that are not healthy for us.The only thing that is healthy in this recipe is the zucchini.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chocolate Zucchini Cake I have made this delicious cake several times now with raving reviews from the people who I served it to. I am planning on making this for a long time on special occasions or just when I feel like I want a delectable cake. I did make on own variations to this recipe. Like for the frosting, I used Cream Cheese and added it to the Cool Whip, it gives the cake a nice touch and it is very tasty. Everyone loved it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sloppy cake Did not care for this when it came out of oven looked great. Cake tested done looked great until it fell. The cake was very wet and sloppy.
