I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Zucchini Brownies

Rich and delicious, fudgy goodness from the garden. Enjoy this dessert while the zucchini are still plentiful!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsps baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or substitute with applesauce)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsps vanilla
1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded zucchini
3-5 tbsps water 

Preheat oven to 350°F, line a 13 X 9" baking pan with foil and spray with oil. Set aside.
In a medium bowl whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together. In a large bowl mix the vegetable oil, sugar and vanilla together.
Fold the shredded zucchini into the wet ingredients and let sit 5-10 minutes for the moisture to release from the zucchini, then add the dry mix to the wet. If the batter is dry, add water only 1 tbsp at a time, mixing just until the mixture resembles a loose cookie dough. The amount of water needed varies depending on the moisture content of the zucchini you're using.

Spread the batter in the lined and oiled pan.

And bake for 25-30 minutes. 
Cool in pan then lift out using the foil and cut as desired.

They are perfectly good as is or you could dust with a little icing sugar.

Or slather on your favourite frosting!
