Zucchini Cupcakes

Beat eggs, sugr, oil, orange juice and almond extract. Combine dry ingredients and add to egg mixture and mix well. Add zucchini and mix well. Fill paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until done. Cool. For frosting, melt and slightly brown butter to give it a more caramel flavor. Then add brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in vanilla. Cool to lukewarm. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until it reaches spreading consistency.

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
2 c sugar
1 c oil
1tbsp vanilla
2 c grated zucchini, not peeled
3 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
Mix first 4 ingredients, add dry ingredients. Stir in zucchini. Grease 2 loaf pans and I like to sprinkle a mixture of 1 tbsp sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon over the bottom and the sides, save some to sprinkle over the top of the batter. Pour half of batter into each loaf pan and sprinkle remaining sugar mixture over this. Bake 350 degrees for 45-50 or until tested done. Cool and enjoy.

Zucchini Squares

3 c grated zucchini
1/2 c oil
4 eggs
1/2 c chopped onion
1 clove garlic minced
1 c grated cheddar cheese
1 c Bisquick
Blend all ingredients. Pour mixture into a greased glass baking dish 9x13. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Let slightly cool and cut into squares. Serve warm.

Zucchini Relish

8 c zucchini,chopped
2 c onions, chopped
1 tbsp salt
1/2 c sweet red pepper, chopped
1 c cider vinegar
1 3/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp mustard seed
Mix zucchini, onion, and salt in a bowl and set aside for 1 hour. Mix all remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Drain zucchini mixture and add to boiling liquid. Bring mixture back to a boil. Remove from heat and chill. I make large batches of this and can it!! It is good on everything you put pickle relish on and then some.
