Zucchini Cake Recipe

zucchini_cake_1
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.

    Your bundt cake pan makes a gorgeous cake! Mine is so plane-jane in comparison. This cake sounds delicious. Looks like I might have to snag some of my neighbor’s zucchini and try it out!

    This cake is great with cream cheese icing. You can also make a filling of brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped walnuts and fill half the bunt pan with cake batter layer the filling and then the rest of the cake batter. Delicious cake.

    ah! you’ve used my most hated vegetable in a delicious cake (really, the only way I’ll eat it) and as a bonus you used my favorite bundt pan!
