What better way to use up your zucchini than in this rich, moise, super yummy, fantastic cake? We had some friends over this past weekend and they were in charge of the dessert. WOW!! It was sooooo good.
Chocolate Zucchini Cake Recipe
1/2 cup margarine or butter (or 1/2 cup mashed beans)
1/2 cup oil
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs (or 2 Tbsp. powdered eggs)
2 cups grated zucchini (if the zucchini is large, remove seeds first)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
4 TBS cocoa
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
Mix all wet ingredients first, then dry ingredients.
Grease a 9X13" pan (I also tried it in 2 (9 inch) pans- works perfect- keep one and give one away)
3/4 Cup Pecans-chopped
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Chocolate chips
Mix together and sprinkle on the top. Pat it down just a little.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 min.
Serve warm with vanilla Ice Cream!
Our new favorite cake!!
