    I made this the other day and it was so chocolate-y and deliciously moist. I also added some roasted walnuts. It is not very sweet though, so I would recommend adding more sugar if you like really sweet cakes. It was wonderful!

    Can I use coconut oil instead of oil? Can I skip instant coffee or what is the right replacement? I have frozen (peeled and grated) zucchini, will that be ok, when defrosted? Thank you.

    Can I substitute zucchini with bananas? Thanks.
