GF Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I made this amazing GF Chocolate Zucchini Cake on Sunday for Mr. Miller's family birthday dinner. Nobody could believe that is was Gluten Free. So moist! I found a recipe on line and did some tweaking so it could work for us. Try it, you won't be sorry. Plus another good way to use up some of that Zucchini population coming from the garden. Should freeze beautifully. Sorry did not make from scratch frosting. I did use cream cheese frosting though. My friend Joan has an amazing Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe I need to get it!

1 stick of butter, softened
1 tsp shortening
1 1/2 C + 3 tbsp sugar
2 jumbo eggs, if you use large add an extra egg yolk or white
1 C pureed fresh zucchini
1/2 C Rice Flour
1/2 C Soy Flour
1/2 C Tapioca Starch
1/4 C unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/4 C corn starch
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Cream butter, shortening and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth. Bake in a greased and floured 8x8 square or round cake pan. 350 for 45-55 min. Remove from oven when pick comes out clean.
