Baking: Double Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Double Chocolate Zucchini Cake

2 eggs
2 cups Sugar
2 cups Flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
4 T cocoa
1 1/2 cups oil
1 tsp vanilla
3 heaping cups shredded zucchini
1 ( 6 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the Frosting:

3 ounces cream cheese softened
2 tsp vanilla
4 T. butter
2 cups powdered sugar

To Make the Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the eggs and the sugar in a large mixing bowl until light. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and cocoa. Add to egg mixture alternately with oil. Stir in vanilla, zucchini, and chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 9x13x2 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.

To Make the frosting: Beat cream cheese, vanilla, butter, and sugar until smooth. Frosting can be thinned with a little milk if necessary. Frost cooled cake in pan.

This is a super easy cake recipe and is very good. I like it best after it has been chilled in the refrigerator. The recipe comes from a sweet little cookbook that my friend Diane gave me called " How does your Garden Grow ?"
