Different types of zucchuni

When a kid sees a zucchini, they are most likely going to refuse to eat one, especially my daughter.  Funny thing is, when Grandma makes zucchini bread, you would think it was chocolate.  She devours it, it is like she has no recollection of what “zucchini” is.  We have made chocolate cake with zucchini in it, and it is probably one of the best chocolate cakes I have eaten.  Dense and moist. Now I have a son who will eat raw zucchini as long as he has ranch dip to dunk it in.   Zucchini is also loaded with Vitamin C.

Put the zucchini in blender, pour buttermilk over the zucchini to fill to the 2-cup line.  Blend.  Add the eggs and blend.

Add:

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 T. oil
  • 3 T. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Blend well.  Pour on greased, hot griddle and fry.  Serve with butter, syrup and to make your kids day ice cream!

One of my favorite comfort foods is chocolate Malt-O-Meal with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top.  My husband thinks it is wrong to even think about serving  ice-cream for breakfast.  I look at it this way, it is basically the same as sugar and milk, plus it cools the hot cereal down faster.  Granted the ice-cream isn’t the most healthy option, but it is fun!  Kids need to know Mom and Dad aren’t always  nutrition police.  I will add a picture next time I make them.
