Ultragrain Flour Holiday Recipe Bake-Off (Giveaway)

I bake a bit more during the holiday than I do the rest of the year.  This can be great for keeping my kitchen warm, but not so good for my diet.  I sometimes like to substitute the white flour in my recipes for a portion of whole wheat flour, but the taste isn't always great (and it can be confusing to know just how much you can sub.)

I recently learned about a new product called Ultragrain Flour, which does all the guessing for you! 
Ultragrain® All-Purpose Flour with Whole Grain tastes and bakes like refined white flour but is the only all-purpose flour blended with 30 percent Ultragrain whole wheat, giving it 9 grams of whole grain per serving and twice the fiber of other all-purpose flours.
Sounds like a plan to me!  In fact, I'll be excited to try this flour in one of my favorite recipes: Chocolate Zucchini Cake!

1/2 c. butter                                      1 and 3/4 c. sugar
2 c. grated zucchini                            2 and 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda                             1/2 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. oil                                            2 eggs
1/4 c. cocoa                                      1 tsp. salt
1 tsp vanilla

Of, course, we'll be substituting Ultragrain flour for the flour in this recipe. We'll cream together the butter, oil, and sugar; add eggs; beat well; add zucchini and then dry ingredients and buttermilk.  Mix well with the vanilla and bake at 350 degrees until done!  Voila!~
