EASY TO MAKE! Adding orange zest/essence really makes it MORE than your average zucchini cake. If you omit the frosting, you can also make delicious breakfast muffins. Thanks for posting, Houseblend! ;) Update: I made the frosting using Kittencal's Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting, #187817. I omitted the vanilla extract and used almond extract, the zest of 1 large orange and a little bit of piping gel to stabilize. It was perfection!
This was a really good. I made this cake in a bundt pan and skipped the frosting entirely. I love orange and spice together, so I added 1/4 tsp orange extract to the batter to bring out the orange flavor and it was excellent. I would definitely make this again and the next time I really want to try the frosting with it.
