Chocolate Zucchini Cake

This is an old family favorite, and not only does it look beautiful when it comes out of the pan, but it is amazing.  The original recipe calls for 2 tsp. grated orange peel, I never do that, but I do add extra vitamin C in the form of CHOCOLATE.  You will need a 10 inch bundt pan, I love my nordic ware one.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup soft butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup milk
1 cup of nuts if desired
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and set aside.  With your mixer beat together butter and sugar until smooth.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each.  Add vanilla, fold in flour mixture alternately with milk and zucchini.  Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
