Chocolate Streusel Zucchini Cake

Well, there’s just no denying it anymore-summer is officially over here.  We had a first freezing nights this past week, and tomorrow the forecast is calling for a few snow flurries.  You know, sometimes I think the bears have got the right idea.  Why not hibernate through the winter, and wake back up once the snow has melted and spring has arrived again?  Sounds like a good plan to me!  I was hoping we might have an Indian summer this month, but the chance of that seems mighty thin now.

I was able to pick a few last things out of the garden before the cold weather settled in.  With some of my last zucchini I decided to make this delicious cake.  I had planned to make it awhile back, but I didn’t bookmark the recipe, and so I ended up forgetting where I had originally found it.  I finally stumbled across it again on Tasty Kitchen a few days ago. There are just too many recipe sites and blogs with great recipes and too little time to try them all! *Sigh*  

I thought the streusel topping of just brown sugar, chocolate chips, and pecans seemed a little unusual (wouldn’t there normally be butter and flour in a streusel too?), but it had really good reviews so I just went with it.  Now that I’ve made it, I highly recommend it!  Very delicious cake, and I like the sweet, crunchy topping.  If you’ve got a few last zucchini hanging around too, give them a try in this recipe 🙂

The recipe can be found here at Tasty Kitchen.

  1. It’s getting cold at night here too Cat, but not as cold as where you are. Snow flurries already? Yikes! Your cake looks so good, especially the topping. Glad you were able to use the last of your garden. Until next year. :o) Have a great Sunday Cat!
