Zucchini Cake

Almost twenty-eight years ago I was in my cousins wedding. Along with the invitation I sent blank recipe cards in hopes of gathering a collection of tried and true recipes for the bride as she began her new life. This recipe came from the grooms Aunt Mary. It came with no instructions - just ingredients. I simply add them all together and mix! It is a dense, rich cake and very moist!

Zucchini Cake 
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup nuts
8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
2 tsp. vanilla.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour 10 minutes

Zucchini, Chocolate and... Peanut Butter Frosted Cupcakes *Yum*

Sure, chocolate and peanut butter... that's a match made in heaven. But zucchini? That seems an unusual ingredient in a sweet dessert. Just try one of these and you'll agree, Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes with Peanut Butter frosting are very GOOD!
