Chocolate Zucchini Cake

An alternate recipe for Decadent Chocolate Cake

Make the chocolate cake according to the directions on the package, with the following change:

During the last minute of mixing, add one cup of shredded zucchini that you have rolled in paper towels to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. Bake as directed.

This will make the cake even more moist and nobody will guess that it has a vegetable hidden inside.

To give it a more unique taste, add ¼ to ½ teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter when mixing.

Swedish Pancakes

An alternate recipe for Light-As-Air Pancakes

1 package Light As Air Pancake Mix
3 eggs
1 teaspoon sugar
2 1/3 cups water

In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar and water. Beat well . Add pancake mix and beat until completely smooth. If there are any lumps, smooth them out with the back of a spoon.

Heat griddle to 350 degrees. Spray with oil. For each pancake, use one scant ladle of mix and using the back of the ladle, quickly work the batter out to form a 5" very thin pancake. Once top begins to set, flip pancake. In another minute it is done. Makes 14.

Note: These pancakes should not get brown like regular ones. We especially like them spread with butter and sugar, then rolled and eaten with our fingers. That's how we ate them as kids, and we still love them that way. We also sometimes use these as crepes. They are yummy filled with berries, a dollop of sour cream, rolled and topped with a drizzle of hot fudge sauce.

Chicken and Dumplings

An alternate recipe for Garlic Cheese Biscuits

5 chicken breast halves 1 teaspoon salt
6 peppercorns
6 bay leaves, divided
1 teaspoon minced garlic
½ cup gluten-free flour blend of your choice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots, finely diced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 small onion, diced
½ to 1 cup frozen corn
½ to 1 cup frozen peas
2 gluten free chicken bouillion cubes
½ cup cream or half-and-half
1 package Garlic Cheese Biscuit mix
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped chives
2 eggs
½ cup buttermilk

Place chicken, 1 teaspoon salt, peppercorns, 3 bay leaves, and garlic in a dutch oven. Cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1 hour until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from broth to a cutting board to cool. Strain the broth and reserve. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and reserve.

Wipe out the stock pot, then add the olive oil. Heat over medium heat, then add carrots, celery, 3 bay leaves, and onion. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Add flour and stir until veggies are coated. Slowly add 4 cups of broth and bouillion cubes. Continue to stir until slightly thickened. Add chicken, peas and corn. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Add cream. Add additional broth as needed to be sure it is slightly "soupy". Bring to a gentle boil.

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine Garlic Cheese Biscuit mix, 1 teaspoon salt and chopped chives. In another bowl beat eggs and buttermilk with a fork. Pour into biscuit mix and stir until well mixed.

Using two tablespoons, drop dumpling batter into broth. Dip the spoons into the broth each time to keep batter from sticking. Don't crowd dumplings; drop them in a single layer. Cover tightly with a lid and bake for 25 minutes. Don't peek!

Serve in soup bowls and enjoy!

Dairy Free Fudge

An alternate recipe for Fudge Frosting

2 Packages Fahlstrom Farms Fudge Frosting mix
¼ cup (½ stick) Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks
1/3 cup Almond Breeze (or other non-dairy milk)

Prepare a square 8" or 9" cake pan by lining with aluminum foil. Let foil hang over the edges to make it easy to get out of the pan. Spray foil with Pam, then gently pat with a crumpled paper towel to soak up excess oil.

In a 2-quart saucepan, heat butter substitute and milk substitute on low to medium heat until butter is melted and mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat. Add frosting mix and beat with electric mixer until well blended and smooth. Spoon into prepared pan. With a rubber spatula, push into corners and smooth the top. Chill in the refrigerator and cut into squares. Makes 64 pieces.

Options: Add crushed peppermint sticks or nuts.
