Like my cooking, this blog is subject to my going back and making a change in already posted recipes. Such is the case with the Chocolate mint zucchini bread with walnuts. I had put notes in bold script on how to turn that basic recipe into a cake. Well, that is simply not going to work, I don't know what I was thinking (or not thinking as the case may be!).

When I purchased the zucchini, I made sure I got enough to cook at least 2 recipes from it. It was a real toss-up I will tell you, the Tomato Zucchini Gratin or this cake. The deciding factor? It is simply that the mint is coming to an end. I really wanted to perfect this little cake, so much so, that I can't let it go, I needed to make it. You can bet I will go out to the organic farmer again, real soon!
