Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Introduction

Everyone loves this cake. I make it healthier by cutting the fat with applesauce. I personally do not like to use the artificial sugars; but you could further reduce calories that way.
Also, the original recipe calls for just a half a cup of chocolate chips; but I did the nutritional info for a whole cup sprinkled over the top.
