Chocolate Zucchini Cake

We should all have zucchini coming out our noses by now, right? And what do you do with this obscure vegetable? Well, I actually have a few ideas. One being the most perfect zucchini bread. But here's another idea...turn that green vegetable into a CHOCOLATE CAKE! Great idea, right? The zucchini in this cake makes it so soft and moist. And the chocolate chips and nuts on top are just wonderful. 


1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. oil
1 2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. buttermilk
2 c. zucchini, shredded
1 (6-oz) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat margarine, oil, and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix until well blended. In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Stir in margarine mixture, then add buttermilk and zucchini. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x13 pan. Sprinkle nuts and chocolate chips on top.Bake for 55 minutes.

Pin It!
