These savory 'cakes' are popular in France and in Canada. They freezes well and wrapped in aluminum foil will keep for several days in the fridge. I found this recipe on a website - Pronounced: cake / oh / koor zhet / oh / pee no(n) - and I have posted it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. Serve this as an appetizer, or for breakfast or brunch, or as a dessert.

Easy to make, and smells good baking. I made as posted, and it turned out great. It is not as sweet as other zucchini bread that I have made in the past, but it is just as moist. Really great for breakfast. I made this for Newest Zaar Tag.
