mmmm who doesn't love chocolate Zucchini Cake!!


Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt together:
2 TBsp. butter
6 TBsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
Set aside.

In a mixing bowl cream:
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix the following together then add to the creamed mixture.
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups flour
Add in the cocoa mixture.

To one cup of chocolate chips add 2 TBsp. flour and coat well. (this keeps the chips from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
Add chocolate chips, and 2 cups of finely grated zucchini (I mince mine pretty small) to the mixture and mix well.

Grease a 13x9 in cake pan and lightly flour (I like to sprinkle mine with cinnamon sugar as well)
Add mixture and bake for 25 to 30 mins. or until toothpick comes out pretty clean. (or for a thinner cake can do in a jelly roll pan.. only need to bake 15 to 20 minutes.)
Cool.
Frost with Fudge frosting (yes, I like to use the canned frosting in homemade chocolate or fudge flavor) and then sprinkle top lightly with more unsweetened cocoa powder. Enjoy!
This is my favorite and it's healthy right... it's got zucchini in it! And eggs! :o)
