This moist apple, chocolate chip & zucchini cake is the perfect way to make sure you are eating your vegetables but still enjoying a sweet treat.
As a Chocolate lover, this is my all-time favorite treat. No one suspected that in the cake i have added Apples & Zucchini 😉
This cake is much lighter than most chocolate cakes. Cake pieces just vanished from dabba.
