Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I saw this on Pinterest and knew I just had to try it.  I made a few changes I will put them in red.  My oldest grandson Josh was home for a visit (he's a Marine and We're soooooooooooooo proud of him)  Well anyway we had one of his favorite dishes one night (Frito Pie) and I made this to have for dessert.
I found the recipe here

2 medium zucchini's grated 
7 TBL cocoa powder
2 TBL butter, softened 
3 eggs
2 cups sugar 
1 1/2 cup apple sauce *** see my change below***
3/4 cup applesauce 
3/4 cup greek yogurt
1 TBL vanilla extract 
1 1/2  cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour 
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt 
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (I used Gheradili chocolate chopped)

This is the cake without the glaze.  The cake in on the heavy side but so yummy.

Preheat the oven to 350 °.

Grate the zucchinis. set aside.
Combine sugar, eggs, applesauce, yogurt, zucchini, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl.
Combine the chocolate chips with a couple tablespoons of the flour to keep them from sinking to the bottom while the cake is baking.
Whisk the dry ingredients then stir into wet mixture.  Fold in chocolate.
Stir until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Pour the batter into a well-greased bundt pan. Bake the cake for 60-70 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake cool for ten minutes before inverting onto a plate.

Chocolate Glaze
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon light corn syrup

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine butter, chocolate chips, and corn syrup in a microwaveable dish. Heat in the microwave in 30 seconds intervals at 50% power, stirring in between, until nicely melted.  Pour over cake and enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and remember to find the Time to Do All the THINGS YOU Love.
