Zucchini Brownies

2 C grated zucchini, packed
2 C flour
1 1/2 C sugar
1 t salt
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/2 C vegetable oil
1/4 C cocoa

Sift ingredients, add oil and the zucchini, spread in greased, but not floured 9x13. 350, 25 min.

The canned chocolate frosting is so good on these, but if you don't have any, this is a good fudgey recipe from my BHG book:

4 3/4 C sifted powdered sugar
1/2 C cocoa powder
1/2 C butter/marg softened
1/3 C boiling water
1 t vanilla

Combine the sugar & cocoa.  Add butter, boiling water, and vanilla.  Beat with mixer on low until combined.  Beat for 1 more minute on medium.  Cool 20-30 min. or until spreadable consistency (I think it takes less time).

We made these and they are VERY good! We love the frosting! I over-baked them so they are were a little dry, but the flavor was great!
