Individual Chocolate Espresso Cake…with Zucchini!

The last few weeks my recipes have been heavily influenced by my farm share, as it should be this time of year. Two of my most popular posts, chocolate dipped strawberry creamsicles and lavender marionberry mason jar pie have both been born from farm share goodies. So when I found zucchini in my crate this week, the wheels in my head started turning. I played around with different ideas all week and yesterday I went to work in the kitchen. The result: a moist, rich chocolate espresso cake.

Your use of your farm share zucchini was much more creative and enticing than mine (a basic ratatouille). Job well done! Can't wait to make it!
