Zucchini is in abundance at this time of year so I pulled out my MIL's recipe, got all the ingredients together and got to baking. Hubby and I enjoyed some for dessert at supper..(minus the flower and leaves of course). The rest will be shared! Hmm..who would like some??
Here are some of the ingredients for:
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups finely shredded zucchini..(peel and all)
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts, I used pecans
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Cream butter, oil and sugar, blend in vanilla, eggs and buttermilk. Mix dry ingredients and shredded zucchini and mix in with the moist ingredients except for the nuts and choc chips.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Srinkle with nuts and choc chips.
Bake in preheated 325 oven for 45 min.
This is how the cake looks when baked.
