    Chocolate Zucchini Cake Recipe


    2 1/2 cups regular all-purpose flour, unsifted
    1/2 cup cocoa
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    3/4 cup soft butter
    2 cups sugar
    3 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 teaspoons grated orange peel
    2 cups coarsely shredded zucchini
    1/2 cup milk
    1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
    Glaze (directions follow)
    Method
    Preheat the oven to 350F.

    1 Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.

    2 With a mixer, beat together the butter and the sugar until they are smoothly blended. Add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition. With a spoon, stir in the vanilla, orange peel, and zucchini.

    3 Alternately stir the dry ingredients and the milk into the zucchini mixture, including the nuts with the last addition.

    4 Pour the batter into a greased and flour-dusted 10-inch tube pan or bundt pan. Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes (test at 45 minutes!) or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 minutes; turn out on wire rack to cool thoroughly.

    5 Drizzle glaze over cake.

    Glaze: Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 Tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until smooth.

    Cut in thin slices to serve. Makes 10-12 servings.

    This is the one I make .I omit the orange peel and at times I will throw in a cup of chocolate chips too

    I use to use applesauce instead of oil in my Amish Friendship Bread. It was so moist and better for you.

    I use this recipe, also. I sprinkle flax seed on top and some white chocolate chips over that.
