I promised you Dessert didn't I?
This recipe is great because it has zucchini in it making it terrifically moist and it also has this crispy, chocolatey, crunchy topping that blows you away! It is so good it actually makes you glad you have 28 zucchini in your garden ready to be picked! I have had this recipe for many years and it never fails to delight me when I pull it from the oven. Have fun sharing this one but make sure to save some for yourself!
Self Frosted Chocolate Zucchini Cake
1/3 cup margarine (softened)
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup buttermilk (you can substitute regular milk and sour it by adding 1/2 tsp. baking soda
and 1/2 tsp. vinegar)
Cream these ingredients together with the mixer.
Then in a separate bowl combine these ingredients:
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa powder
Add these dry ingredients together with the creamed ingredients with the mixer.
Remove bowl from mixer and fold in :
2 cups finely grated zucchini (I peel mine first but that is optional)
Spread this batter evenly into a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Now sprinkle evenly on top:
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup brown sugar
Bake at 350F Degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.
Now go use those Zucchini!
