Best chocolate courgette cake

This is a moist fudgy type cake. Sweet but not extremely sweet and makes good use of courgette! You can ice it with chocolate icing or cream cheese icing.

Probably the ultimate chocolate cake. Certainly the best I have ever tasted. I made icing from cocoa and molasses (run out of icing sugar) and put a layer of ginger jam in the middle. It is not over sweet, but fulfils that need for an intense chocolate experience. Fabulous.

I loved this cake. I've made it a few times now and do it in two 1lb loaf tins so I can freeze one and scoff the other. I used 200ml of oil following other comments, and have found that this cake is better on the second day - not sure why. I sent a batch off with my MiL to her church coffee morning and have now been requested to make more for the ladies. I squeezed the courgette in a tea towel to get some of the moisture out, not sure if you're supposed to as the instructions didn't say, but the cake was delicious so will continue to do so. Served with Nutella Buttercream Frosting - perfecto!

I made these this afternoon and they are delicious. I only used 200ml of oil, and added chocolate chips instead of walnuts. Used a Nutella Fluff frosting, which was yummy. Can't taste the courgette at all, and the kids have devoured it! Brilliant!

Very moist and fudgy. Everyone loved it - no one could taste the courgette The only criticism is it was too oily so I would use less oil next time
