Yes! It is correct ZUCCHINI. Why not? When we can make amazing cakes with spinach, carrot, pumpkin and other vegetables why we don’t try zucchini. It has an amazingly soft texture; incredible taste and it is really moist. Let’s start!

Ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour                           2 cups
  • Cinnamon powder                        2 teaspoons
  • Salt                                                   1/8 teaspoon
  • Baking powder                              2 1/2 teaspoons
  • Egg                                                   3
  • Sugar                                               2 cups
  • Vegetable oil                                  1 cup
  • Vanilla extract                               1 teaspoon
  • Lemon zest                                    1 teaspoon (1 lime or Lemon zest)
  • Shredded Zucchini                       2 cups
  • Chopped walnuts                         1 cup  

Instruction:

  • Preheat the oven at 350 ˚F
  • Whisk flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
  • In another bowl beat the eggs.
  • Add the sugar and beat at high speed.
  • Add vegetable oil, vanilla extract and lemon zest and beat till well combined.
  • Stir in flour mixture gradually and beat.
  • Stir in zucchini and walnut and mix with the help of a spatula.
  • Pour the batter in an oiled  20*30 cm pan.
  • Bake for one hour or till the tester comes out clean. (60-75 minutes)

 

Notes:

I used a Pyrex 20*30*8 cm as a cake pan.

Zest the zucchini at the time you are adding to a batter to avoid extracting more water.

You can substitute one cup of zucchini with one cup of shredded carrot. This mixture also provides an amazing taste, but zucchini alone gives a very moist and soft texture.

Enjoy.
