Zucchini harvest

I have never planted zucchini... heck, I rarely even eat it! But my father's cousin has an acreage and literally, her whole plot of land is garden. Seriously. She showed me her zucchini plant, and gave me a couple, so I had an opportunity to test out recipes that otherwise I would've ignored.

I hope you like my mother's delicious chocolate zucchini cake!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake
1/2 c. butter, softened
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. sour cream
1 chocolate fudge cake with pudding in mix (18.25g)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 c. grated zucchini
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped pecans
Mix ingredients with electric mixer. Grease and flour bundt pan or 10" tube pan. Bake at 325 for 40-50 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool on rack 15 minutes, then invert on a serving plate to continue cooling. Frost when cool if you want.
