Chocolate Zucchini Snack Cake


1/3 cup butter, softened
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
2 Tbs cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups shredded zucchini
2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar


In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add eggs; mix well. Beat in the buttermilk, applesauce, chocolate and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; beat into butter mixture just until moistened. Stir in zucchini.  Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

Yield: 18 servings.
