Recipe Swaps.....Here I come!

Our Local Scrapbooking Store, Simply Scrapbooks is sponsoring a Recipe Swap! Of course I had to join in! We ended up with 2 seperate swap groups. One has 20 people participating and the other has 21 people participating. There was a 6 month commitment to join so we will end up with 120 recipes once all is said and done for the first swap and 141 recipes in the second swap! I am so excited and wanted to share my layouts with you!

The October Recipe Swap was appetizers/Drinks. Here are the recipes that I created for that swap!

  2. I couldn't get the email thing to work but my fav dessert is Chocolate Zucchini Cake. You seriously don't even taste the zucchini!!!!!! So here's the recipe....
    1/2 cup soft butter
    1/2 cup cooking oil (can use 1/4c applesauce 1/4c oil)
    1 3/4 cups sugar
    2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 c sour milk (add small amt of white vinegar to sour milk)
    2 1/2 cups flour
    1 tbsp cocoa
    1/2 tsp cloves
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 cups PEELED grated zucchini
    1/2 cup choclate pieces
    1/4 cups choppend nuts

    In a mixing bowl, cream butter, oil and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla and sour milk; blend. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and salt; stir together. Add zucchini; mix well. Spoon into greased and floured 9x13 baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate pieces and nuts. If using a glass pan, bake at 325 about 45 minutes or until cake tests done. If using a metal pan, bake at 350 about 40 minutes or until cake tests done. Does not require frosting.

    Notes: I don't add the salt or cloves and it tastes wonderful. I also have use the applesauce and substitue remaining oil with flaxseed meal. :) ENJOY!
