    I followed the recipe and did not use the optional glaze. It was delicious, but only after resting for 12 hours. We had some just after it cooled and I was disappointed. I didn't like the texture (it was a bit rough) and it didn't seem sweet enough. But then I had a piece the next morning and it was perfect in every way. The texture was great and it was plenty sweet. Like that, no one would have guessed it was whole wheat. Many recipes in this book tell you to let the final product sit overnight to improve its texture, and though this recipe doesn't mention that, it made a huge difference. Tasting it after it was just cooled, I would not have made it again. After 12 hours, it is on my list of favorite recipes.

    This was a good use for the giant zucchini from the garden. The cake didn't come off as overly sweet as some zucchini bread recipes, perhaps due to the whole wheat flour, which, while discernible, was not unpleasant. Used oil rather than butter, and didn't have enough cocoa powder, & so used only half the amount called for. Did not use optional chocolate glaze. This produced a rather mild chocolate cake, but with the bittersweet chocolate chips, was actually quite satisfactory. (Maybe because it didn't seem quite so decadent)
