Elaine Epp (Val), July 16, 1994 – Eva’s favourite zucchini cake recipe

  • ½ c. margarine
  • ½ c. oil
  • 1 ¼ c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c. sour milk
  • 2 c. shredded zucchini
  • 2 ½ c. flour
  • 4 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. cloves (opt.)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ c. walnuts
  • ½ c. chocolate chips

Cream sugar, margarine, oil. Add eggs, vanilla, sour milk and soda alternately with flour and cocoa. Mix. Stir in zucchini. Pour into a greased and floured 9×13” pan. Sprinkle with chips and nuts. Bake 40-50 mins in a 325 oven; alternatively, put in two loaf pans.

Grandma’s addition: “April 25/09: Made slightly larger batter – 3 eggs, 2/3 milk (sour cream), more flour, etc. Baked in 3 small pans (heart + 2 loaf p.) at 330 for 37-40 mins.”
