This dessert makes a cool and delicious treat on a warm summer day. I bake a tender crust from a cake mix, then layer it with a cream cheese blend, chocolate pudding and whipped topping.—Pam Reddell, Linden, Wisconsin
I found this recipe in a cookbook and made some changes to it. My husband likes to have it for his birthday cake. We live with my husband's family on a 27,000-acre ranch in the mountains and raise cattle, grain and hay.
"My three girls love these moist, nut-topped cupcakes even without frosting," remarks Debra Forshee from Stockton, Kansas. "They're a great way to use up zucchini, and they freeze well for a quick snack."
Meet the Cook: The biggest compliment I've ever gotten on this cake might have come when I baked it for my son's 11th birthday party last fall. The children were full after eating pizza, veggies and dip, etc. - but each of them asked for seconds!

This recipe came from my grandmother. As children, my sister and I remember going to Pennsylvania for blueberry picking. Mother taught us to pick only perfect berries, and those gems went into this wonderful recipe.
