Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I’ve noticed that most good cake recipes come from friends. They will have made it for an occasion, and of course they are going to make a good one, and then you like it and ask for the recipe. This one is no exception.

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour bundt pan.
Combine the dry ingredients.
Cream the butter, sugar and eggs.
Add the dry ingredients.
Stir in the zucchini, and then the nuts.
Spoon into the bundt pan, and bake for about 1 hour.
Cool for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto cooling rack.
When cool, place and serving plate and dust with icing sugar if desired.
