Chocolate Hemp Zucchini Cake

This A.M. I woke up to rainy weather and the loaf of cake I made last night.  A delicious moist, full of protein and nutritious cake!  This cake has certified organic hemp protein, rich in essential amino acids, omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, zucchini and a lesser amount of sugar than most zucchini cake recipes.  It also has a unique nutty flavour, YUM!
