Being Green: Zucchini Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe for Serious Eats

It's not easy being green.

It is, however, exceedingly easy to eat green, especially when we're talking about zucchini cake. Now, you probably already knew that the abundant late summer fruit (yes, it's a fruit) yields a moist, dense, and delicious quick bread. But please, don't let the story end there—because when you take it into cake territory by adding a thick slathering of chocolate cream cheese frosting, you'll have a far sweeter finish.

The frosting prettily contrasts the color of the cake, and the triple-threat of complementary flavors—tangy cream cheese, rich chocolate, earthy zucchini—makes for a final product that leaves zucchini bread absolutely green with envy.

Fru - (double take) zucchini's a fruit? REALLY?

Yes, it is a fruit! I discovered this last summer when I was on a bit of a zucchini cooking bender.
""Botanically, the zucchini is an immature fruit, being the swollen ovary of the female zucchini flower."

Do yourself a favor and try zucchini pie.

Mmmmmmmm.... That looks so yummy!!! I love Zucchini cake, so I am going to have to try this!
