    Nice cake @Poka Doodle ! I've wondered before, what happens to the baked goods that are entered at fairs? Do the participants take them home or are they donated somewhere?

    This is my go to one, although I add however much zucchini I have on hand, usually leftover from savoury dishes, so anywhere up to two cups. Although I would encourage you too stick with the recipe, I think the extra zucchini adds depth and flavour to the chocolate and moisture, but my sister claims mine tastes too much like chocolate zucchini slice for her tastes.

    So you know...moto each their own.

    Good luck on getting first place….I always thought the judges tasted the goods in the contests.

    Thanks for hosting the thread, it's one of my favorites [​IMG].

    And thanks for post # to the recipe. I haven't baked "real" pumpkin bread, the recipe I have tried is more of a sheet/flat cake . Will try the bread in the Fall.
