Recipes: Chocolate Zucchini Cake and Orange-Flavored Zucchini Bread

Here's a link to a really good Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/recipe_views/views/907

Here's another good recipe:

Bronwyn's Orange-Flavored Zucchini Bread

1.5 cups white flour (use some whole wheat if you want)
1 cup sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. ground ginger (I omit this)
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1.5 cups grated zuchinni
1 teaspoon chopped orange peel
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mix the first 6 ingredients in a bowl together. In a larger bowl, beat the eggs, then add the oil and the zucchini. Stir in the dry ingredients, and the orange peel (be sure to chop it, not grate it)and the walnuts. Scrape batter into a buttered 9-inch bread pan and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 50 minutes. Let cool in pan 5 minutes and then turn out on to a rack.
