Mom's Cinnamon Cake With Zucchini

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by BB502

Our Family loves this cake! Anytime we serve it, or give it in our GiftBaskets...everyone wants the recipe! You cannot tell it has Zucchini in it, but it makes for a very moist, tender cake. I took a few old recipes for Zucchini cakes and made some changes, ending up with this wonderful recipe! You can make it different each time, by adding raisins, or cranberries, blueberries, peaches, apples, pineapple, etc. I usually make it in a 13X9 pan and cut it into five nice sized loaves, for sharing or freezing! The cinnamon and cloves give it such a great flavor, and the aroma when baking is awesome!

This was a great bread in the summertime with fresh zucchini. The moisture from the garden-fresh squash helped with the 3/4 c of cocoa powder I added instead of the fruit.
