It’s hard to go wrong with cake and this one gets loads of moisture from the zucchini plus it’s topped off with my mama’s famous fudgy frosting.Wet Ingredients – Eggs, apple sauce, oil and vanilla!Whisk: To start, you’ll whisk together your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.We LOVE this frosting because it comes together in about 2 minutes and it gets poured over the cake instead of spread (so easy!!).Plus, after it’s sat for a bit it firms up into this crackly, fudgy texture that is just to die for.Zucchini adds loads of moisture to the cake without adding fat.I’ve also swapped in applesauce for some of the oil to keep this cake lower in fat without sacrificing flavor or texture.Super moist cakes tend to go bad quicker at room temperature.Increase the amount of oil in the recipe to 1 1/2 cups and leave the applesauce out altogether.Buttermilk Pound Cake: The browned butter glaze drizzled over the top is divine! .
