When I was a little girl in Massachusetts, we used to go to my grandmother's house in Lowell for Easter and we always had eggs poached in pure maple syrup. My grandmother was French Canadian so maybe that is where it comes from. As strange as many people think it sounds, it sure is good. If anyone else knows of this tradition please comment I would love to know where it originates.
Since my kids are now teenagers we decided to forgo the chocolate bunnies and jelly beans this year and make chocolate zucchini cupcakes. This cake is my families favorite, it is so moist and chocolaty with a hint of cinnamon. If you would like to try this cake you can find the recipe here. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
