Elizabeth's Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Total Time

I got this recepe originally from my friend Elizabeth who had a huge garden and plenty of zucchini. It is a moist, lovely cake that I like plain with no icing or frosting, though Elizabeth would use an orange or lemon glaze . She would also use whole wheat pastry flour. I have also used bittersweet chocolate with great results. Sour cream or yogurt can be substituted for the buttermilk.
