Chocolate Spice Zucchini Cake

This sounds weird, but my kids love it, and it's a great way to slip some zucchini by 'em. ;)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour and 9x13 pan.

1 C brown sugar, packed
1/2 C sugar
1/2 butter, softened
1/2 C oil
3 eggs
1 t. vanilla 
1/2 C buttermilk (or you can use 1/2 t. baking soda dissolved in milk to imitate sour milk)
2 1/2 C flour 
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ground cloves
1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking soda
4 T. cocoa powder
2 C. unpeeled, grated zucchini
3/4 chocolate chips

Cream sugars, butter and oil. Add eggs, one at time, mix well. Add vanilla and buttermilk. Combine dry ingredients and add to batter. Mix well. Stir in zucchini. Pour into 9x13 and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake  for 50 - 60 minutes, until a knife inserted in the middle, comes out clean. Cool completely.
