|Chocolate Chocolate Zucchini Cake|
Submitted by: Bill Nunes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square-baking pan.
(I always make this recipe at least doubled. I have used a large rectangular pan or make it in 3 rounds for a layer cake with chocolate frosting of butter, powdered sugar and unsweetened cocoa.)
Combine sugar and oil in a bowl. Beat with electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
(I use my KitchenAid for all mixing and grate the zucchini with the large grater. Use the whisk for liquid ingredients then switch to the beater when adding dry.)
In a separate bowl stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. In 2 parts add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture, beating well. Stir in shredded zucchini and Â¼ cup chocolate chips.
Pour into pan. Sprinkle (extra) chocolate chips on top. Bake about 35 minutes (less for round layers). Test with toothpick.
Optional: Cool. Frost.

"Since its [original] publication in 1978, ...Park's Success with Seed has been one of my favorite resources for starting seeds of vegetables, herbs, and flowers."
