If you have zucchini you need to use, these Zucchini Brownies are delicious.
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups zucchini, shredded
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-4 Tablespoons water
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1½ Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk
  • pinch of salt
  1. Using an electric mixer, combine the oil, sugar and vanilla extract.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, ½ cup cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined.
  3. Fold in the zucchini. The mixture will be powdery. Add in 1 Tablespoon of water then stir. Continue to add 1 Tablespoon of water and mix until the mixture is not powdery. You will not need to add too much water. You want the batter to be thick. (When I made this I only needed to add in 1 Tablespoon of water.)
  4. Line a 9x13 baking pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread the batter in the baking pan.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. Insert toothpick or knife to test if brownies are done.
  6. Take out of oven and allow to cool.
  7. To make the frosting, combine the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, butter, milk and pinch of salt. Mix until combined. Spread the frosting on after the brownies have cooled.
