Chocolate Zucchini Cake

 Mmm.  A delicious way to eat your veggies.  Or something like that.  This recipe is adapted from this recipe.  The zucchini keeps the cake moist while the chocolate chips settle in the bottom for a little fudgy surprise. 

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 T strong coffee
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 cups flour
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, beat. Mix in vanilla and coffee.  Mix in soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder.  Add flour.  Add zucchini.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Bake in greased 9x9 square pan at 350 for ~45 minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar just before serving.  Enjoy!
