chocolate zucchini cake

I got this yummy recipe from my friend Liz. Talk about a great way to hide veggies.... it is so yummy and moist that your kiddos (or anyone else for that matter) won't even notice the zucchini!!

1 cup butter
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups flour
3 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 c cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
4 eggs

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in zucchini. Pour into a jelly roll pan or a 9 x 13 pan for thicker slices. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes. Frost with your favorite homemade chocolate frosting. Enjoy!!!
