Shirlene's Zucchini Cake

Are you wondering what to do with all of those zucchini's from your garden? Well, wonder no more. This cake is divine! The picture doesn't do it justice here, but I'd rather have a picture than not have a picture. You can make it in a 13x9 pan or in a sheet pan (as shown here).
In microwave, melt the following:
2/3 cup butter
2 T. hot water
2 cups brown sugar (beat well)
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla (beat again)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
4 T. cocoa
Mix well and then stir in:
2 cups shredded zucchini (stir well)

Spread batter in a 13x9 cake pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1 cup chocolate chips all over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Or you can use a cookie sheet for a thinner cake and bake for about 30 minutes.
