Chocolate Zucchini Cake

by Julie Garreau

Ingredients

2 cups of all purpose flour

2 cups white sugar

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking power

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1.5 tsp ground cinnamon (adjust according to taste...I like cinnamon)

4 eggs

1 1/2 vegetable oil

3 cups grated zucchini

Note: If you use frozen zucchini, squeeze some of the water out. If its freshly grated then use as is.

Optional:

• You may add 1/2 C. chocolate chips to the batter.

• You may replace the vegetable oil with the same measurement of applesauce. It changes the taste a bit, but is yummy, healthier and still moist.

Instructions

Pre heat 350 degrees

Grease and flour the baking pan.

Mix all of the ingredients together.

Bake 50-60 minutes in the oven until the knife inserted comes out clean.
