Chocolate Zucchini Cake

This is an excellent way to use up all that grated zucchini: it tastes good, it's very chocolatey, and it has a lot of moisture. It takes at least 3 days to dry out. Makes 2 loaves.

1/4 c butter
1/2 c oil
1 & 3/4 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c buttermilk
2 & 1/2 c flour
1/4 c cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 c grated zucchini
1/4 c chocolate chips

Make this the usual way: cream butter and sugar, add eggs one by one, add liquid ingredients then dry ingredients, fold in zucchini. Dump into loaf tins or one 9" X 12" cake tin. Sprinkle with chips.

Bake 325ºF for 45 minutes (loaf tins). Less for cake tin.
