Zucchini Chocolate Cake


Are you up to your rear in Zucchini?  Let's make something delicious!
This recipe is from a dear sweet elderly lady by the name of Reva Phillips.
2  1/2c.  sifted flour
1/4 c. baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 c. cooking oil
1 3/4 c. sugar
2 Chicken Scratch Poultry eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. buttermilk
2 c. grated zucchini
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. chopped pecans
 *If you don't have buttermilk, you can sour milk by adding 1/2tsp vinegar to the 1/2 c. milk*
Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.  Cream together butter, oil and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, using electric mixer on medium speed.  Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Blend in vanilla.  Add dry ingredients alternating with buttermilk to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.  Stir in Zucchini.  Pour batter into greased 13x9 inch baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and pecans.  Bake in 325 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes.

 I'm not much of a cake lover, I would much rather have pie any day.  I can tell you this was delicious!  It is so moist, give it a try I think you'll love it and you'll use up some of those zucchinis.

Have a Great Day!

  2. We had this for dessert tonight, and it is fantastic! Here in Alaska, the zucchini has grown gang busters this year, so this will be a wonderful addition to my list of "101 Ways to Use Zucchini"! Thanks for the recipe!
