Taste of Home’s Zucchini Cake – YUM!

Taste of Home

I am FAMOUS for my zucchini bread..however, when I am serving it to a first time zucchini bread eater…I just call it “sweet bread”, until they tell me how absolutely delicious it is and couldn’t possible go on without another slice!!!

I don’t know why people have a phobia of zucchini.  Personally, I don’t think it really has a taste at all…I think people get freaked out because it starts with a “Z” and it’s green….here’s a great recipe from Taste of Home to turn their opinion around….easy and yummy!



1/2 cup butter, softened

1-3/4 cups sugar

1/2 cup canola oil

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup 2% milk

1/2 cup buttermilk

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup baking cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups shredded zucchini

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Confectioners’ sugar


In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar and oil until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

Combine milk and buttermilk. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to batter alternately with milk mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in zucchini.

Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake at 325° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners’ sugar. Yield: 15 servings.
