It always amazes me that you can't tell it's zucchini in a cake. It's a good way to get kids to eat a vegetable (me, too.) Your mom must have been a good baker, Ilene.

Ilene - that's good that you have her recipes written down. My grandmother never wrote down any of her recipes and none of us can remember the "secret ingredients" to some of her dishes. We can get it close, but not like hers!

By chance did she have a good carrot cake recipe? The old-sashioned kind that has lots of spice and chunky texture? I lost mine to a computer crash last year.
