      Our friend Kate has the following changes that she likes to make:

  1. Instead of 2 C white sugar, 1 of brown and 1 of white
  2. Add some grated carrot that had been squeezed dry and a bit of lemon peel to the grated zucchini
  3. Use only 1/2 C oil and add 2/3 C milk
  4. Add a bit of nutmeg, ginger and a pinch of cloves to the cinnamon
