I found this cake recipe on Mary Hunt's Debt-Proof Living site. I might make it for a Saturday Night dessert. I happen to have all of the ingredients on hand.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Cake:
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup milk
2 cups peeled and grated zucchini, drained very well
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
6 tablespoons evaporated milk
1 pound confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375F. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and oil. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the egg mixture alternately with the milk. Stir in the zucchini and extract. Pour into a greased 15 x 10 x 1-inch. baking pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until cake tests done. While cake is baking, combine all frosting ingredients. Mix until smooth. Spread frosting over cake while hot. Cool on wire rack.
