Chocolate Zucchini Cake

This used up almost a whole huge zucchini

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 cups grated zucchini (unpeeled) I did the zucchini in my mini food processor

Stir together all dry ingredients. Add eggs, applesauce and oil, mix thoroughly with spoon (do not use electric beaters). Stir in grated zucchini. Pour into prepared Bundt pan, 350 degrees, 50 min. to 1 hour.

This came out moist, delicious and it’s even sort of healthy. I did not frost, just sifted some 4x sugar on it to look pretty. Next time I think I’ll omit the cinnamon, it detracts slightly from the chocolatiness. And there will be a next time as daughter’s garden has LOTS of zucchini waiting.
