This Browned Butter Chocolate Zucchini Cake is the perfect thing to make with those gigantic zucchini that are overtaking your garden. The crusty, sugary topping is amazing!
I hope you’ll bear with me here while I finally share my first (and probably last) Zucchini recipe for this summer. I’m a little late jumping on the zucchini recipe bandwagon, but I couldn’t let summer officially end without sharing a recipe with that dear old squash that grows in plethoras here in Utah.
I didn’t plant any this year, but my cute friend came to my rescue and sent me home with two gargantuan zucchini last week, so I had no choice but to make bread, cake, more bread, more cake . . .
This Browned Butter Chocolate Zucchini cake is amazing. It’s so moist and so delicious. I’m not going to lie, the topping is what completely takes this cake to the next level. A crusty brown sugary topping with chocolate chips. . . so fabulous! I’ve made it twice in the last week. I still have one huge zucchini left which means I may just make it a third time.
Just look at that crusty, sugary, scrumptious topping. Isn’t it just heavenly looking? It’s my favorite part of the cake!
So if you’re lucky enough (or maybe unlucky) to have zucchini left, you really should try this cake. You won’t regret it, your hips and thighs might, but your tastebuds won’t.Print
