Mix your Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and add your oil and then the sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla until well blended. Next, this recipe calls for sour milk. Now, most of us don’t stock sour milk at least on purpose! But it is very easy to create. Just mix together 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or vinegar) into the half cup of milk and stir. Now the sour milk is made and ready to add to the rest of the wet ingredients.

Once well mixed,  slowly add the dry ingredients into the batter.

Bake the Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Pour the batter into a lightly greased 9×13 glass pan and smooth out the batter with a rubber spatula. For a little bit of fun, sprinkle chocolate chips on the top of the batter.
