Donut Muffins
I have made this recipe 3 times over the past week and a family loves them! Made regular-size muffins...a triple recipe makes 2 dozen in my pans. Added about 1 tsp. salt plus 2 tsp. vanilla extract plus about 3/4 tsp. lemon extract to the tripled recipe - really gives them that great donut flavor. Used stick margarine (Imperial) in the batter, but used real butter to dip the muffin tops at the end. Took the muffins out of their paper cups for dipping and coating with the cinnamon sugar, while still warm. Also rolled some of them in powdered sugar instead....really yummy...taste just like donuts! So good with coffee in the morning!!

Chocolate Oil Cake
This recipe was given to my Mom from a great-aunt back in was called "Crazy Cake", due to having no eggs in it. A family favorite, I bake it often. Because a 9 X 13 cake is more difficult to store, I usually bake it in a bundt pan sprayed with Pam for Baking spray. Comes out very easily - never had one stick yet! I have added chopped chocolate chips and also jarred mincemeat for delicious results. Easy recipe to add to. I DO use 3/4 c. cocoa (my preference) along with 1 T vanilla and 1 tsp. salt.

Mom's Zucchini Bread
There's certainly a reason this recipe has earned a 5-star rating from so many's just the best! I was looking for a good way to use up a quantity of zucchini which my daughter-in-law brought home (a gift from a co-worker) and this sounded so good. The only change I made, out of necessity, was to sub 1 cup of light brown sugar with 1 1/2 cups white sugar, and subbed 3/4 finely chopped pecans instead of 1 cup walnuts. Amazing taste, and moist! This will be the recipe I use from now on!
