I saw the recipe for chocolate cupcakes and clicked on it but when I went to scroll down to read more, I accidently clicked on Zucchini cupcakes that was right by the scroll button so I ended up making the Zucchini cupcakes wondering how the chocolate taste was going to come out of zucchini and spices....then I realized I must have made a mistake somewhere so after a bit more scrolling I saw my mistake. I would never make zucchini cupcakes as we do not really like zucchini but because I had some on hand for a stir fry recipe I ended up with a pleasant surprise. They sure aren't chocolate but we liked them just the same and I guess we end up with a healthier version of cupcakes than if we had the chocolate. They really are quite good!
