ZUCCHINI CAKE

This recipe came from a friend.

Combine: 
        1/2 cup margarine or butter (I prefer butter)
        1 3/4 cups sugar

Add: 1 cup applesauce
        2 eggs
        1/2 cup sour milk (1/2 cup milk; 1 tsp. vinegar or lemon 
                   juice - let sit a few minutes.)
        1 tsp. vanilla

Combine and add to above ingredients: 
        2 ½ cups flour
            (I use 3/4 cup whole wheat for part of the flour)
       1 tsp. salt
       1 tsp. soda
       1 tsp. baking powder
       1/2 tsp. each cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves
       1/4 cup powdered cocoa

Stir in 2 cups grated zucchini

Sprinkle over top: 
       3/4 cup brown sugar and 6 oz. chocolate chips


Bake in a greased 9x13 pan at 350 degrees for 40-45 min. Test with toothpick.

NOTE: You can shred and freeze zucchini to use in recipes. Be sure to add all that is in the container, including the water that separates from the zucchini. I usually put one cup shredded zucchini in a zippered sandwich bag, lay it flat and freeze. Thaw before using.
