Chocolate Zucchini cake


Approximately a year ago a good friend of mine gave me a recipe for a Chocolate Zucchini cake.  I don’t remember the reasoning behind it but I was smart enough to keep it.

This week I found my self with two large zucchinis courtesy of our produce co-op and I remembered that I still had the recipe.  Here is the result and the recipe.  YUM

3/4 cup margarine, soft
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. orange peel

1. cup walnuts OR Chocolate chips (the chocolate chips were my add in)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp mik
1/2 tsp vanilla
