It 'tis the season for inventing anything and everything recipes involving zucchini. I grew up eating a chocolate zucchini cake and when I searched, I found many similar recipes. This recipe is the one I made today. As you can see, Emma and Mandy enjoyed it too.
Not to be left out, Mandy wanted to join the party.
Here you can get a good look at my atrociously messy kitchen. Someone, please tell me how to cook/bake with two children at each elbow without making the entire room a catastrophic collision of dirty dishes, cluttered counter-tops and gritty floors. It took me an hour to clean it.
I didn't fool my husband when he ate the cake. I blended the zucc instead of grating it, so there wasn't even a hint of strange textured veggie. He said, "This has zucchini in it, doesn't it?" Uh, why would you say that, just because I have a pile of zucchini in the kitchen that looks a little smaller since you left this morning and I also have on my list to make Zucchini Bread and Zucchini Pancakes for dinner? He doesn't have anything against zucchini, but he grows weary of the endless invented recipes. Last night I pan fried zucchini with bacon and Parmesan cheese -- it was lovely.
Here is the finished cake with homemade ice cream. Want some? It was delicious.
What are your recent zucchini inventions?
