Zucchini-Carrot Cake

This is phenomenal (if I do say so myself)! It is so moist and delicious! I feel you could substitute the carrot and zucchini for bananas and chocolate chips or another treat of your choice. The batter would also make AMAZING holiday breads, just alter baking time. Other options for toppings would be powdered sugar, or a lemon glaze. Also, feel free to put nuts into the batter for an added crunch!
