Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Submitted by: VERIVEGI

Introduction

recipe is from the cookbook, The Treasury of Creative Cooking, by the editors of Consumer Guide, c. 1992

makes one 13x9-inch cake

Notes about the ingredients added for nutrient calculation:
1. I couldn't find chocolate flavoring so it isn't included
2. The chocolate chips amount was calculated (as best I could) by how many tablespoons are in a cup. A weight measurement would be more accurate, but I'm away from home and don't have my scale.
3. I suspect that a cup of sliced zucchini is a smaller amount than a cup of shredded zucchini, but again, I don't have my scale with me.
