Zucchini Time


Blake's new summer hobby is gardening, and for those of us with gardens in Minnesota, its zucchini time. So, I've had to take out all of my favorite zucchini recipes to keep up with the steady flow of produce Blake is providing.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins


1 box lemon cake mix
1 small box of instant lemon pudding
1 cup pureed zucchini
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup poppy seeds

Mix the lemon cake mix and pudding together. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until moist. Place in muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350º.

Zucchini Brownies

1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder

2 cups grated zucchini
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, soda, salt and baking powder. Mix in oil, zucchini and vanilla until combined. Batter will be stiff. Pour into a greased 9"x13" pan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350º.

1 1/3 cups sugar
6 Tbsp. milk
6 Tbsp. butter
