Chocolate Zucchini Cake (the King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking Cookbook)

I made this cake for CD's Birthday. It was a bit dry, but we think that was due to getting a more dry zucchini. It was very delicious and reasonably healthy. Also, I cut down on the sugar.

2 1/2 c traditional whole wheat flour
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch process)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c packed light or dark brown sugar
1/2 c unsalted butter, softened or vegetable oil
1/2 c buttermilk
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 c shredded or chopped zucchini (2 small zucchinis)
1 c chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 45 - 50 minutes in a 10 c Bundt cake or 9 x 13 pan.
