Mom's zucchini cake

Posted by Crystal

This is one of my favorite childhood recipes. Mom used to make it (and still does) in the fall when the zucchini is coming out of her ears. It is so amazing and chocolaty you would never know there was 2 cups of the big green veggie in it.

1/2 cup softened margarine
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 cups grated zucchini
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour milk (I use sour cream mixed off with a little milk)

dry ingredients

1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour

chopped walnuts
semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 pan. Mix all (except dry ingredients) in a mixer until well blended. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients into chocolate zucchini mixture. Mix well. Pour cake batter into baking pan. Sprinkle chopped walnuts and chocolate chips over the batter, covering top in a thin layer. Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
