  • cupsugar
  • 1largeegg

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugar, egg, vanilla and milk and whisk together until well combined.

  2. Stir in the zucchini. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir together until just combined.

  3. Pour into a greased 9×13-inch baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  5. Squeeze caramel all over the cake, filling in all the holes. Refrigerate cake for several hours or overnight.

  6. When ready, top cake with Cool Whip and toffee bits. Slice and serve.
