Inside Christening Cake with Recipes

This cake turned out so well. I am pleased with the combination of caramel mudcake and chocolate zucchini cake. They both complement each other and are both equally delicious, moist and cut very well. I use the chocolate zucchini cake for most of my cakes but will now also use this caramel mudcake one as well.
This is the recipe for the caramel mudcake.
This is my chocolate zucchini cake recipe
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
2 1/2 cups plain flour
2 1/2 teaspons bicarb soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
2 cups grated unpeeled zucchini
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup butter.
(*Optional add 1 cup chopped walnuts/pecans if you wish, I usually omit just in case nut allergies)
Combine flour, cocoa, soda, salt, cinnamon - set aside.
Beat butter, sugar until smooth and creamy.
Add eggs one at a time, beat well.
Stir in vanilla and zucchini. Alternatively add dry ingredients and milk into zucchini mixture (add nuts now if using).
Pour into greased and floured 9" x 13" (23cm x 33cm) pan. Bake in moderate oven for 45-60 minutes. Cool in pan for 20 mins. Turn out and ice with chocolate frosting. This cake freezes well.
