Shredded zucchini keeps cake moist without affecting the flavor. Skip the frosting...sprinkle the top with chocolate chips and nuts.

1/2
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ German chocolate cake mix (about 1 2/3 cups)
1
cup shredded unpeeled zucchini (about 1 medium)
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8
teaspoon ground cloves
1/4
cup buttermilk
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1
egg
1/4
cup chopped nuts
1/4
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom and side of 9- or 8-inch round or square cake pan with baking spray with flour.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, zucchini, cinnamon, cloves, buttermilk, oil and egg with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan. Sprinkle evenly with nuts and chocolate chips.
  • 3 Bake 9-inch pan 27 to 35 minutes, 8-inch pan 32 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Expert Tips

Out of buttermilk? Use 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar plus milk to make 1/4 cup. Let stand for about 5 minutes before using.

Bake and serve the cake in a pretty, oven-safe ceramic pan.
