How to make it

  • Combine the four, cocoa, baking powder, soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • With a mixer, beat together the butter and the sugar until they are smoothly blended.
  • Add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • With a spoon, stir in the vanilla, orange peel, and zucchini.
  • Alternately stir the dry ingredients and the milk into the zucchini mixture, including the nuts with the last addition.
  • Pour the batter into a greased and flour-dusted 10-inch tube pan or bundt pan.

    Love the zucchini in this chocolate cake. That extra orange gives it a unique flavor.

    Oh, you guys are killing me! Chocolate and zucchini! I think my daughter may be getting the hint she is being set up to do these recipes (she's blonde, it takes time). Gotta figure out what to bribe her with next. Nice post. On my list.
