    I received this question as a comment on a different post, but since it about Amazon Cake I thought I'd copy & paste it here…

    Debbie,
    I have a ton of zucchini and wonder if you think adding zucchini to the amazon cake recipe would work. Would you swap out something? I'm just looking for a way to sneak in a few veggies.

    Hmm, that's a tricky one.

    I think it might throw off the texture–Amazon Cake is definitely a cakey-cake, while cakes with zucchini in them tend to be more spice-cake-like, heavier if that makes sense. OTOH, if you try it I'd LOVE to hear how it turns out!

    It's not vegan, but I did find this recipe for an actual Chocolate Zucchini Cake on Simply Recipes: http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/000621chocolate_zucchini_cake.php That's a great site and I totally trust Elise's recipes.

    I know this as 'Wacky Cake' and it's amazing and totally foolproof! I make a bigger recipe and sub cold coffee for the water. Yummy!

    Debbie,This was a great idea. My kids loved it and my husband was also thrilled. We didn't even wait until Shabbos to try it. I sprinkled it with powdered sugar and dribbled a parve chocolate ganache on top. It looked really pretty.

    Thanks again! Sharon
