Zucchini Cake Recipe
Still have more of that garden zucchini? If so you may want to give this recipe for zucchini cake a try. That abundance of zucchini cannot go to waste. This is very similar to zucchini bread but it uses crushed pineapple as well as zucchini. This cake is very moist and has a delicious flavor. It might just be the best zucchini cake ever. For the cake pan, I used a Bundt cake pan but several other types of cake pans should work as well (such as a 9×13). Once the cake is cooled it is glazed with a combination of confectioner’s sugar and milk. Like most cake recipe this is super easy and takes very little time. Enjoy.
