Shredded zucchini keeps cake moist without affecting the flavor. Skip the frosting...sprinkle the top with chocolate chips and nuts.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ German chocolate cake mix (about 1 2/3 cups)
cup shredded unpeeled zucchini (about 1 medium)
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground cloves
tablespoons vegetable oil
cup chopped nuts
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
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.
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.
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.
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.
