Spiced Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Our garden is just pumping out the zucchini right now so today I made a cake and shared the rest of the zucchini with the chickens, they love it, they just demolished it!

And it smells pretty awesome while it bakes!

Spiced Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake:

In large bowl cream together:

1 cup butter – room temp
