Chocolate Zuchinni Cake

Jarin's birthday was a few weeks ago. I have somehow become the designated dessert maker for birthday celebrations. Jarin requested my mom's chocolate zucchini cake. Seriously the best use for all of the surplus zuchinni that seems to float around this time of year. I usually try to grate it and store it in the freezer in 2 cup bags, then you can enjoy it all year long. No pictures, but, enjoy.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake
1/2 cub butter
1/2 cup oil
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter milk
1 cups grated zucchini
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped nuts
Combine margarine, oil, sugar, and eggs. Blend in flour, cocoa, salt, soda, baking powder and buttermilk. Add zucchini and vanilla. Pour into greased and floured 9x13 pan. Mix together chocolate chips, brown sugar and nuts and sprinkle over top of cake batter. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
