Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I wanted chocolate cake this week and the recipe for this cake has been on my to do list for a while now. I love buying old recipe books and occasionally if I’m lucky I find old recipe boxes filled with recipes that someone no longer values. I’m lucky as I have my moms, my grandmothers and great grandmothers recipe books. A treasure trove of memories! I found this recipe in one of those old books I found at a garage sale.
