2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 cups grated zucchini
3/4 cup chopped walnuts–Optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs and oil, mix well. Fold in the nuts and zucchini until they are evenly distributed. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool cake completely before frosting with your favorite frosting.
I do not frost cakes unless there is some occassion calling for the butter and sugar, so simply dusted the cake with some confectioners sugar to make it fancy for the picture.
**I twisted the recipe for the oil, by using lesser than asked for. I did make only half the recipe and still it was very decent size cake for a family of four plus few friends. I am posting the entire recipe for everyone’s ease, so enjoy and make this cake.
