Zucchini Chip Snack Cake

I LOVE zucchini and all the fun and YUMMY things you can do with it. This recipe is similar to a ZUCCHINI brownie, but not quite so DENSE. And the chocolate chips on top are super TASTY!

Zucchini Chip Snack Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups shredded zucchini
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or do a mixture with half milk, half semi)

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in oil, eggs, and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in zucchini. Pour into a sprayed 9 x 13-inch pan and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

TIP: If you don't have any buttermilk on hand, just make your own! Just measure 1/2 cup milk and remove about 1/2 tablespoon. Stir in 1/2 tablespoon vinegar and let sit for about 5 minutes. Voila! You will have buttermilk to use in your recipe when the time is up! If you need 1 cup of buttermilk for something, do the same trick but remove and add 1 tablespoon instead.
