chocolOTTe chip zucchini cake

Yet again this week I come to you with a recipe for something I grew in my garden.  Zucchini!!            If you would like to see a better picture of this recipe please click here.  

This is where my "plOTTing and planting" feature meets my "in the kitchen a lOTTe" feature.

 I love going to my garden, picking something I grew, bringing it in the kitchen and baking something with it.  It makes me feel resourceful and downright thrifty.  So this here is my recipe for chocolOTTe chip zucchini cake.  This is definitely Ott, E's favorite cake!!!

We planted our zucchini in early May.  It bloomed in late June and we harvested it in July.  I notice people are always looking for something to do with their zucchini this time of year, when there is plenty of it around.  So when I found this tasty recipe I knew it was a keeper.


I use a food processor to grate/puree the zucchini for this recipe.
As always, here is a handy little recipe card you can click on, print off and use to make this tasty cake yourself.

I think, this is the 5th blog I visited featuring zucchini. I don't eat zucchini, but I think if I'll eat it with chocolate like wha you did, I might like it.
Have a nice day!

This looks really yummy. We will have to try it out as the zucchini in my mother-in-law's garden have been flourishing.

This looks really good--I will save this recipe--thank you for sharing it. I didn't plant any squash besides pumpkin this year, but I can get some at the farmers' market if I get desperate!

Yum! My dad grows zucchini every year, at least enough for an entire county! So I've been making all kinds of "zucchini" things lately. I bet this would be a great muffin too!

This looks tasty! I am always amazed at the different ways that zucchini can be used. Next year we are definitely planting some. This year... I'll have to hope that other folks have bumper crops! ;-)

I love this idea! I might have to pick some zucchini up at the grocery store. Sadly our garden didn't work out this year...we did get some tomatos though. :)
