  6. 1/2 cup vegan butter - I used Earth Balance

  3. Add lemon juice to non-dairy milk, and set aside.
  4. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl.
  5. Beat sugar, "butter" and oil in large bowl until well blended.
  6. Add egg replacer and vanilla.
  7. Mix in dry ingredients alternately with milk.

Notes
  1. Some people like their Zucchini cake frosted or baked with chocolate on top, but honestly, I found it so moist and delicious, it didn't need it.
  2. Walnuts would make a nice optional addition to the batter, added at the same time as the grated zucchini
