We were gone for a week and came back to two 2-foot long zucchinis! It's a good thing our two-year-old doesn't grow that fast. We'd need a much bigger house. It has been tough to figure out what to do with these beasts. We could keep them next to our bed in case of intruders. We could organize a neighborhood softball game. Or, we could start cooking! Let's start with dessert (and call it a snack).
I saw this recipe around the time we were first planting our zucchini plants. I tucked it away, sure that I'd have some home grown zucchini soon. The cake comes out super moist and not too sweet. I might add walnuts next time just to give it one more dimension, but it was great as is. Also, the recipe said to bake it for 20-25 minutes, but my cake took about 35-40 minutes to get done.
