I made this recipie last night for guests and got rave reviews. I made it into 2 round pans instead of a bundt pan and cooked it for about 20 minutes less. The chocolate chips didn't completely melt, so if you like that, use your excess zucchini in this way!! (After grating squash, hand squeeze it before you measure it.)
