Ingredients

2 medium
zucchinis
7 Tbsp
cocoa powder
2 Tbsp
butter, softened
3
eggs
2 c
sugar
1-1/2 c
applesauce
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1-1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
wheat flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 c
semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

CHOCOLATE GLAZE

3/4 c
semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
light corn syrup
1/4 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grate the zucchinis and set on paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Between 2-3 cups is perfect.
2
Combine sugar, eggs, applesauce, zucchini, butter and vanilla in a large bowl.
3
Combine the chocolate chips with a couple tablespoons of the flour to keep them from sinking to the bottom while the cake is baking.
4
Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Stir until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
5
Pour the batter into a well-greased bundt pan. Bake the cake for 60-70 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto a plate.
6
Chocolate Glaze: Combine the butter, chocolate chips and corn syrup in a microwavable dish. I use my pyrex glass measuring cup because it makies it easy to drizzle the glaze over the cake. Heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals at 50% power, stirring in between, until nicely melted. Pour over cake and enjoy!
