    Chocolate Zucchini Cake

    Ingredients

    Cake:

    Cooking spray
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup (4 ounces) block-style fat-free cream cheese, softened
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    2 large eggs
    2 large egg whites
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
    2 cups shredded zucchini
    2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts

    Glaze:

    3/4 cup powdered sugar
    3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
    8 teaspoons fat-free milk
    2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
    1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350°.

    To prepare cake, coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray; dust pan with 1 tablespoon flour.

    Place sugars, cream cheese, and vegetable oil in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add eggs and egg whites, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

    Lightly spoon 2 1/2 cups flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine 2 1/2 cups flour and next 5 ingredients (2 1/2 cups flour through cinnamon) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

    Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in zucchini, 2/3 cup chocolate chips, and nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

    To prepare glaze, combine 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons cocoa in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine milk, 2 tablespoons chocolate chips, coffee, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in a 1-cup glass measure. Microwave at medium 45 seconds or until chocolate melts, stirring after 20 seconds. Combine powdered sugar mixture with chocolate mixture, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle glaze over cake.
