Zucchini Chocolate Walnut Cake

This is another chocolate muffin recipe which I adore!! They are extremely moist and chocolatey! On the 2nd day, the muffins still taste as good as freshly bake :) Sounds weird with zucchini incorporated into these muffins? It actually add extra moisture to the muffins without compromising the taste. I like the idea as my kids will have extra servings of greens while indulging into their snacks! 1 stone kills 2 birds!! hahahaha...

i recently too baked a choc zucchini cake and i also love it very much, very moist, i think the moist also comes from the grated zucchinis but dont know where all the zucchinis gone after baking...!
