The first thing I did was measure out the almond milk and added the 1/2 tsp of vinegar to it.  I set this aside until needed.

Then I prepared the zucchini so it would be ready to add when I needed it.

The grated zucchini.

Next I dumped the brown sugar, granulated sugar, margarine, meringue powder and vegetable oil into a large mixing bowl.

Using an electric mixture I creamed the ingredients together.

To the creamed mixture I added the eggs, vanilla and almond milk (with vinegar).

I used a large wooden spoon to stir in these ingredients until they were well blended.

Now I added the Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger.

Using the wooden spoon I stirred the dry ingredients into the other ingredients until they were well blended.

I now added the grated zucchini that I had prepared earlier.

Again, using the wooden spoon I folded the zucchini into the batter.

I carefully scraped the batter into a 9 x 13″ baking pan which I had sprayed with cooking spray.

Before placing the cake in the 350F oven I sprinkled it with semi sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.

I put it in the oven to bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

After baking the cake I allowed it to cool completely in the pan before cutting it into 24 pieces.

Serve as is or top with Cool Whip or chocolate sauce or both!
