Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Healthy zucchini in a super moist and delicious chocolate cake. It’s the best of both worlds!
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups sugar

2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk (or sour milk)
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
2 cups grated zucchini
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter, oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk. Sift dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Mix in zucchini and chocolate chips. Bake in a greased and floured bundt pan or a 9″x13″ greased pan at 325 F. for 45 minutes

This cake was really yummy and everyone enjoyed it, Cole included. What’s not to enjoy really? It is chocolate cake after all. I’d be a little concerned if Cole didn’t eat it because then he really would be the pickiest kid alive. I liked the cloves and cinnamon in it too, I never thought of pairing those spices with chocolate but it works! I think it should have more chocolate chips though, and maybe icing too, because I figure if you’re going to indulge in chocolate cake you might as well go all out. At least with this version you get some nutrition (and a really moist cake) because of the zucchini. Here’s Cole enjoying his cake:
