Chocolate cake with ribbons of zucchini... who thunk this up? I have made/eaten this cake a few times and I always forget how much I love it until the first bite. I think this cake makes for a great excuse to eat chocolate, why not? It's got my veggies too! =D
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 ts baking powder
1/4 ts cloves
1 ts cinnamon
2 cups shredded zucchini
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 vegetable oil
1 ts vanilla extract
8 tbs butter at room temperature
1/2 yogurt at room temperature
2 large eggs at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 325.
Stir together the dry ingredients.
Beat together the butter and oil until a nice cream has formed, about 5 minutes.
Add the sugar and beat for another five minutes or until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at time and beat well after each addition.
Beat in the vanilla.
On low speed gently stir in half of the flour mixture.
Stir in the yogurt.
