Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I just 'put in' my garden last night so of course that means I will soon have zucchini, more zucchini and more zucchini! Ok, well this year I only planted one zucchini plant actually because truthfully? I still have some shredded zucchini in my deep freeze since last year. LOL. This recipe is a family recipe from an extended cousin who is an awesome cook!
