Chocolate Zucchini Cake

So yesterday when I was googling whether or not I could freeze shredded zucchini, I read a post from a mom who was raving about chocolate zucchini cake. I was telling Matthew, and he asked me to make it. I was a little hesitant b/c he doesn’t really like cake, but I thought it was worth a try. I could always take to school and someone would eat it, right?! Especially because I didn’t think it sounded good AT all!

Boy, was I wrong! I love it when that happens That never happens!

The cake is chocolaty, but not too much, and moist…oh so moist! So good with a big glass of skim milk. You can’t even tell that zucchini is in it. And it doesn’t taste anything at all like the zucchini muffins I made ¬†yesterday.

Here’s the recipe I adapted from mommysavers.com thanks to mommy2mercedes:

1/2 c butter
1/2 c applesauce
1 3/4 c sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 c buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c cocoa
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2
c zucchini, grated
3/4 c
chocolate chips

Cream butter,add applesauce and sugar,mix.

Add next 8 ingredients; mix well.

Fold in the chips.

Put in a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan.

Bake at 325 for 1 hour or til done.

I still have 2 cups of the zucchini left from the one I shredded yesterday…what will I do with that? Not to mention the other two HUGE zucchini that I picked yesterday!
