I think it’s fair to say that most of us don’t think, “zucchini and chocolate…MMMMM. Now there’s a combination made in heaven!” I know I didn’t. But guess what? You should absolutely think good and happy thoughts about that combination, because this is an absolutely delicious cake. Continue reading
It’s all about the sauce. And this is a fantastic version, the Russian Sable of Fudge Sauces. This is THE Fudge Sauce. Okay, so you get that it’s really good, right? The Flying Librarian makes a hot fudge that may, may be even better than this, but she refuses to give me the recipe…some nonsense about swearing on her son’s life, so she won’t give out the recipe.

I made this dessert, as Jessica loves cake and she seems to have a soft spot for homemade vanilla ice cream (and for our son, The Middle Child). This is the perfect dessert for this time of year.
