I’m deciding on a cake to bring to my aunt tomorrow. I don’t think this is the right one, but I did make it for my sister’s birthday, (Banana, not zucchini), a few years ago. She really loved it and has ben asking for it again. Maybe this birthday. I use a rose shaped bundt pan and only glazed the edges of each petal. Pretty. Hope ou like it.
Zucchini (or Banana) Chocolate Rum Cake
¾ cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 cups grated zucchini (or banana)
1/3 cup rum
2 ½ cups AP flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup cocoa powder
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
1 ½ tsp. salt
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ cup milk
1 2/3 cups confectioners sugar
3 Tbs. rum
Preheat oven to 350° Grease and flour a 10” Bundt pan.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with each addition. Stir in zucchini and 1/3 cup of rum.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, chocolate, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

My family eats a lot of oatmeal. Here’s a 75 cent (alt 0162 isn’t working here) coupon. I made a bunch of copies which I will share with my daughter and sister tomorrow. Cousin too, if she wants. http://www.betteroats.com/taste.php
Okay, I know I wanted one of those really cut pairs of rubber boots. I don’t think I’d be settling with these though, despite the PITA of lacing them. According to the seller, they’re $100 off original. Unfortunately the have Euro sizes 35-38, and I’d need a 39.
