Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Talia and I made this today and it was delicious. I didn't have powdered sugar so I found a chocolate frosting recipe using brown sugar, evaporated milk and chocolate chips. Enjoy.

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup applesauce
3 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cup flour
4 heaping Tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 cups zucchini shredded (about 2-3 6 inch long)
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan. Combine sugars, butter and applesauce. Add eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla and mix well. Sift together the flour, cocoa, soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the mixture. Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour into pan. Bake 40-45 minutes. Cool and then frost.


1 c. brown sugar
6 tbsp. cream

Bring to boil, remove from heat and add 1/2 package chocolate chips for Chocolate Frosting or 1 package butterscotch chips for Caramel Frosting.
