Tip

There is no need to squeeze the moisture out of the zucchini and as a benefit to this it keeps the cake so moist for days and days.

    What a great way to use up old zucchinis! The cake was super-moist and fluffy. I added a very ripe banana and reduced sugar to 180g and it was still quite sweet. I'll also add some spices next time. Thank you for this recipe, so versatile I'll definitely be using it again!

    Wow I was so surprised, what a beautiful cake. So light and fluffy. And the facti it has a veggie in it is even better. I only had self raising flour so omitted the baking powder. Worked out perfectly.
    Next time I might try with banana instead of all the sugar. Thanks

    Submitted by van der Ploeg on 17. March 2016 - 22:09.

    Absolutely beautiful! I used rice bran oil and spelt flour. It makes a huge cake. I used a large square tin and it took 35mins, 180 degrees fan forced. Can't wait to make it again to impress family and friends. tmrc_emoticons.;)

    Submitted by Sandyweisz on 4. August 2014 - 20:35.

    Cake is Devine, a favourite in this house.  I made it with gluten free flour.  It needs 1 hour of cooking time though not 25mins lol.
