Chocolate Zucchini Cake



I made this today and you'd never know there was zucchini in this! Very Moist and Delish!

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup oil
2 eggs

then add-
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup sour milk or buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

Cream above ingredients and mix well.
2 1/2 cups flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 Tbsp cocoa (unsweetened)
1 Tbsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups chocolate chips (reserve one cup for topping)
dash salt

Mix dry ingredients in a seperate bowl and add to wet ingredients stirring till combined. Fold 1 cup of the chocolate chips in batter.

Grease and flour 9 inch pan. Pour batter in pan and sprinkle with 1 cup of chocolate chips on top.

Bake for 30 minutes at 325. Check with toothpick. Cake can be frosted but doesnt need it at all.

Louanne has commented that her recipe is nearly identical but calls for only 1 tsp of baking soda. I have searched on the net and there are very similar recipes that call for anywhere from 1 tsp- 1 1/2 Tbsp.
