• For those of you who in live in France - this is a great organic red wine. And it is really cheap. We find it at our Franprix.
  • Oh and apparently it is made by monks. I need to confirm this though.

  • I love this plate. - --Barbara--

Chocolate-Zucchini Cake

Newer Older

Again, loved by the all. Especially when we make them guess the secret ingredient (which they can't) and then watch their reactions as they realize that the cake is filled with 3-4 zucchinis. So moist yet not too dense. And sooooo delicious. Absolutely no zucchini flavor (although that wouldn't be so bad).

Here is the recipe I follow with a few personal changes. These zucchinis were in our vegetable basket for last week and this week we got more. I think I'll be making this cake as much as I did last summer....which is a lot!

    Thanks for your comments everyone! The platter is typical of pottery from Bulgaria. We have several pieces like this and we love them all.

    Here are some other flickr photos with Bulgarian pottery:

    Well M - when I go to Bulgaria someday, I'll find something for you! :) My MIL went there last year and brought us back two mugs to add to our collection but they've both since broken! We were so sad!

    Although we still have this one from someone else:

    oooh, I met have to hold you to that. So when are you going? =) They really are beautiful!

    @xx99elledge - just saw your photos! yum yum! my personal changes to the recipe involve not adding the orange peel or the nuts and often I use whole wheat flour cause that's what we have on hand. also, i think i always add more zucchini than the recipe calls for.

    @MAOJ no plans to go soon...but definitely someday and will think of you when I go... :)
