Cinnamon Roll Cake

This recipe has been floating around the internet lately. A teacher friend made it for us at school this week for a spread. I knew immediately it was a keeper.

3 c. flour
1/4 tsp.salt
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. butter, melted

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.

2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

While warm drizzle the glaze over the cake.

Zucchini Bread

This is a favorite recipe from our mother. Our own children grew up on this. They really thought it was chocolate cake because of all the good cocoa and cinnamon. Nothing better!

2 c. grated zucchini
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 c. oil
2 t. vanilla
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
1 t. soda
1/2 t. baking powder
2 T. cocoa
3 c. flour

In a large bowl, blend together zucchini, sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla, and cinnamon. Sift together salt, soda, baking powder, cocoa, and flour. Mix with first mixture. 

Bake for 35-45 minutes at 325 degrees. Makes two large loaves, 3 small loaves, or a bundt pan size.

*Pecans are an optional ingredient.
*I usually dump more cocoa and cinnamon in it. YUM!
