My mother gave this recipe to me. It doesn't call for any eggs. Some zucchini have more moisture than others. It doesn't matter, just use two cups of grated zucchini.
Editor's Note: These brownies are moist and delicious, and healthier too!
2 c. flour
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. cocoa
1/2 c. nuts
1/2 c. oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. finely grated zucchini
Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, cocoa.
Add chopped nuts.
Add oil, vanilla, and zucchini. Mix by hand until moistened. Pour into a well greased 9x13-inch pan.
Editor's Note: We grated the zucchini with a food processor. Worked great!
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool before frosting.
1 c. sugar
4 T. milk
4 T. margarine
1/3 c. chocolate chips
Boil sugar, milk and margarine for 30 seconds.
Add chocolate chips and stir.
After frosting thickens, spread on brownies.
Same brownies the next day, even MORE moist and delicious than they were the first day.
