Zucchini Cake

I had this cake a few years ago over at Shirlene's house and I LWTR (left with the recipe). The topping is crispy, crunchy and chocolaty and then the cake underneath is dense, moist and divine! This is the perfect recipe if you are wondering what to do with all those zucchinis from your garden.

1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 cup melted butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

Mix the above ingredients, then add:

2 1/2 cups flour
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
3 T. cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 T. vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini

Pour the cake batter into a greased and floured 13x9 pan. Top with the following topping:

3/4 c. chocolate chips
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. chopped walnuts

Bake at 340 degrees for 40 minutes or until knife inserted into center of cake comes out clean.
