I am always searching for a good Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake since it is Wolfgang’s favorite.  This one is my favorite so far.  It is nice andchocolaty.  It is hard to taste the zucchini though so I upped the amount of zucchini the second time.  I found the recipe on Epicurious.

2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk, or 1/2 tablespoon vinegar in a measuring cup and then add milk to fill the rest.
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chocolate chips
1.  Preheat the oven to 325.  Butter and flour a 13×9 pan.  
2.  Mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.  
3.  Beat the sugar, butter and oil in a bowl until blended. This took mine a while.  Add the eggs and vanilla.
4.  Mix in the dry ingredients with alternating the buttermilk.  Mix in the zucchini.
5.  Pour the mixture into the pan and sprinkle with the chocolate chips.  The chocolate chips will sink a little when baking and some will remain on top too.  
6.  Bake for 50 minutes.
