I’m not a baker.
I love to cook, but baking is another language. HOWEVER, there are two things I bake, other than out of the box items. One is a chocolate zucchini cake. The recipe follows along with a hint or two.
Try this recipe. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Makes 8-10 servings
Preheat oven to 350º.
Grease 9 X 13 baking dish
Cream: butter/ sugar/eggs
Add and beat well: zucchini/ milk/ vanilla
Mix in rest of ingredients
Bake one hour or until baked through
Before serving sprinkle with confectionary sugar
Wondering what to do with those end of summer vegetables. I mean the ones in great supply.
Why not make a vegetable stew? Keep it thin and add dumplings. Make it thick and serve over biscuits.
This is an old recipe out there in many places. Adapted by the cook210, also known as Adventure George and Photo George. Yeah, the writer of this blog.

Comments by thecook210
don’t add the spinach too early as spinach cook quickly and if over cooked looses form
no spices other than salt/ pepper/ sugar are necessary as vegetable carry the flavor
