Chocolate & Zucchini Cake

A very nice cake! I found it very easy to put together. I found the instruction to mix the zucchini with some of the flour before adding it to the final batter odd--but followed it and regretted it. It made for an extra, messy bowl to clean (the very moist zucchini created something like flour paste on the sides of the bowl) and was (as I anticipated) pointless. Otherwise, the recipe is clear and simple and the cake is great. I baked mine in a bundt pan and gave it a 10-x shower when it cooled. Very pretty and very much enjoyed by all.

I love these! They are so good that they cross over from the gluten-free world. They are beautifully moist. I make them in little brioche tins and they are absolutely adorable.

An absolutely delightful savory quick bread. I used fresh herbs clipped from plants on my balcony and added some scallions for good measure. I chose a nice French feta. The sesame seeds are a really a charming touch. The result is very moist and flavorful without overwhelming whatever else you're eating.
