1/2 c or more to taste - chocolate chips (mini are best)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees, grease a 13x9x2 pan.
Finely dice (don't shred) the zucchini, peel if you don't want the green in the cake, or if the zucchini is a bit tough skinned, 2 cups is after the dicing.
In a mixing bowl combine the butter, applesauce, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour milk, mix on medium until smooth.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and flax, salt. Add to the wet ingredients slowly until the mixture is smooth. Don't overmix.
Pour into 13 x 9 x 2 pan, smooth the top and sprinkle chocolate chips over the surface to your favorite density.
Bake for 40-45 minutes in a 325 degree oven.
Note- 2 smaller size zucchini add up to 2 cups.
To make it dairy free just use a dairy free margarine and a alternative milk (I use coconut milk)
Enjoy Life makes amazing mini chips that are great for this recipe.
You can use wheat flour in the recipe just fine.
Use 1/2 c oil if you have no applesauce.
If using wheat flour feel free to substitute wheat germ for the flax.
you can leave the chips off and frost for a more conventional presentation.
