"This is my son's favorite cake. It stays very moist. I usually frost it with cream cheese frosting, but it is also great plain. It can also be baked in 2 loaf pans for zucchini bread."

This is the best recipe for zucchini cake. My whole family just loves it. My son raised zuchinni in his garden. The recipe for cream cheese frosting ll on this website is wonderful. I like to put this on the cake!! We did not add nuts. I like the cake recipe because it is so tender and moist. Give this recipe a try. You won't regret it!! YUMMY

When I baked this cake and tried it I gave it a 3 star rating. I did not frost it, but baked it in a bundt pan and sprinkled it with icing sugar. It was ok, but the next day it was worse. I wouldn't make it again. It seemed to get denser and did not have a great flavour. I would have given it a 1 or 2 star rating after the first day. Sorry.

This cake is incredible. My husband was very leary on trying a cake with Zucchini in it and it's all the rave. I made it for a bake sale to benefit the NYC/DC Crisis and it was the first to sell out. I already have requests for the recipe and to make more for the bake sale next week. From 2 zuchinni's I got 2 9x13 cakes and 3 loafs of Zuchinni Bread. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS WITH US!

Yummy cake! I decided to use 1 c carrot and 1 c zucchini… and 2 t cinnamon, 3/4 t ground nutmeg and 1/4 t ground cloves (versus 3 t cinnamon.) I took it to work and the whole ER was begging for seconds! Thanks, Joan, for a great recipe!

This cake is absolutely moist and melts in your mouth. I topped it off with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting and WOW what a combination. I am planning to make this for a family reunion that my fiance and I are going to.

This was very, very good and moist. I baked it in a round tube pan for 60 minutes. It dosen't really need any frosting.

Excellent cake! My family really liked this cake, very moist, fluffy and full of flavor! I did use 1 cup whole white wheat flour and 1 cup AP flour, I also did half oil and half applesauce, then reduced the sugar to 1 cup(may reduce to 3/4 cup sugar- the icing will add the extra sweetness.) and left out the nuts. Mine was finished by 25 minutes, so make sure you watch it carefully. Everything else was followed exactly. I made 1/2 the recipe white chocolate cream cheese icing (from carrot cupcakes with white chocolate cream cheese icing- by BAKERAMA- from this site) to top it. It is so good! Great way to use up that zucchini! Oh, I peeled the zucchini before grating.

This is moist and delicious. I used some Splenda in place of sugar and used 1/2 cup applesauce in place of half the oil. I left out the nuts as I was taking this to a potluck and was unsure of preferences. I will put them in the next time. I frosted with Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting by Candy Lady (1/2 recipe). Thanks for a great way to use up some zucchini!
