Moist Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I made this yesterday and it was SO GOOD!  I brought it to a luncheon with some friends of mine and even the kids couldn't get enough of it (along with the husbands).  It's super moist.  If you are tired of zucchini bread...try this.
1/2 c butter
1/2 c applesauce
1 3/4 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/2 c buttermilk
2 1/2 c flour
4 T cocoa powder
1/2 t bp
1 t bs
1/2 t cinnamon
2 c shredded zucchini
3/4 c chocolate chips

Beat butter, applesauce and sugar well. Add in eggs, vanilla and buttermilk.  Mix well.  Sift in dry ingredients and create a batter.  Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour into greased cake pans.  Bake 325 for 30 min or so.  Cool 15 minutes before removing from pan.  Frost with chocolate frosting.

3 c pwd sugar
2/3 c cocoa pwd
1 t vanilla
1/3 c milk
1 stick butter

Bon Bon
