Chocolate Zucchini Cake

My mother-in-law warned me that her son didn’t like vegetables. He denied it vehemently. He still does. But, I’ve observed the man’s eating habits over the last seventeen years, and I would say that his mother was mostly right.

Her son doesn’t like many vegetables.


But, he does like chocolate bundt cake – with just a touch of powdered sugar. She gave me this recipe years ago so I could sneak some vegetables [5] into his diet. She was a woman who always thought of these kinds of things, long before they were trendy.

Last summer I could not find this recipe when I had a glut of zucchini [6] on hand. But, low and behold, I found it this morning. Yeah! It’s so nice to have recipes to remember her by, though I wish we had her [7], instead.
