A-Z BLOG CHALLENGE - DAY 26 - Z IS FOR ZUCCHINI


Day 26 is Z – A-Z Blog Challenge http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
 
Z is for Zucchini
 
Do you love chocolate cake? How about Chocolate Zucchini Cake? We do and don’t be put off by the zucchini. This is what makes the cake so moist and delicious and probably one of the reasons it freezes so well.
 
Heat oven to 325F
 
Grate 2 cups of zucchini and set aside. (One time I only had 1-1/4 cups so I made up the difference with grated apple. It was delicious.)
Sift together 2-1/2 cups flour, one-quarter cup cocoa, and 1 teaspoon each of baking soda and salt, and set aside.
Cream one-half cup unsalted butter with one-half cup canola oil and 1-3/4 cups of sugar.
Beat 2 eggs into butter mixture along with 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Add flour along with one-half cup of buttermilk.
Stir in grated zucchini.
Pour into 13” x 9” x 2” pan and sprinkle over the top 6ozs chocolate chips and ¾ cup of chopped walnuts and/or pecans.
Bake in 325F oven for 55 minutes or until done.
Cool in pan on rack.

On May 10, 2015 I have a new release due out from Amber Allure:
THE REPLACEMENT www.amberquill.com  – THE REPLACEMENT.
Here’s a brief teaser:
 
When Noah loses his life partner to kidney failure, he needs a replacement to help run his restaurant business. After a couple of tryout failures, Noah interviews Gavin Murray. Gavin has everything needed to be the perfect general manager. He has the education, the experience, and the polish and sophistication required in a top executive. The only problem is that Noah finds him sexually attractive in a way that borders on obsession. He wants Gavin but he tells himself that he can’t have him. He’s still mourning Brett and he’s far from ready to move on with his life. If he had any sense he’d turn down Gavin’s application. Instead, he agrees to give Gavin a three-month trial period by convincing himself Gavin is his only option and business comes first.
