My current favorite zucchini cake recipe

This cake is super simple and is from a recipe I found on Allrecipes called "zucchini brownies."  I would be really sad if I were expecting brownies because I've made it multiple times, and it is definitely a cake.  Still delicious, but a cake.

For the cake:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups shredded zucchini

Preheat oven to 350*F and spray a 9x13" baking dish.
Combine oil, vanilla, and sugar in a bowl.  Add dry ingredients and stir well.  Stir in zucchini.  Spread in the pan and bake 25-30 minutes (I use the toothpick method to see when it's done.)  Let cool and spread with frosting.

2 cups powdered sugar
6 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tablespoons of milk

Mix all ingredients (except milk) with an electric mixer.  Add enough milk to get the consistency you want.
