Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter softened
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. cinnamon ( I use more because I love it!)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk (I make my own with vinegar)
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 to 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350°. Grease 13x9 inch pan. In a large bowl, combine sugar, margarine, oil, vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon, and buttermilk; blend well. Fold in zucchini, chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into pan. Bake 350° for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes clean. Try to get it right when the knife becomes clean so it will not be too dry. You can cool and frost with chocolate frosting if you desire, I prefer to eat without frosting because it is so moist. ENJOY!
