Low Carb Mocha Zucchini Brownies/Mocha Ganache

Mocha Zucchini Brownies/Mocha GanacheFood Mistakes, Food Mistakes. OK, so everybody likes zucchini cake and there are a million recipes out there and that is what I started out to make. Suddenly things changed…for the way better. Since I like to mess around with my own ingredients, the “cake” turned out very moist & dense, did not raise much, and is seriously a brownie and definitely not cake. I decided to top it with a mocha ganache instead of frosting and good grief they are fabulous.
