Homemade Spiced Zucchini Cake

Vegetables are delicious…when they are blended into a cake right? Plain sautéed zucchini is good but zucchini is taken to a whole knew level when it’s blended into an old fashioned, perfectly spiced, sweetly delicious cake and covered in a decadent cream cheese frosting!

This homestyle zucchini cake tastes very similar to carrot cake, which is why I love it so much (carrot cake is one of my favorites)! Plus it’s got to be one of the moistest cakes you’ll ever make. Not a dry crumb in site.

It’s easy breezy to make (you don’t even use a mixer for the cake portion), and it’s sure to satisfy those cake cravings.

I highly recommend finishing it with pecans or walnuts for some textural contrast. I haven’t ever been a big fan of nuts swirled into cake but I love them as a finishing touch on a spiced cake like this. They complement it beautifully.

Store the cake in the fridge and from there you can even enjoy it cold.
