Some years back I grew too many zucchini's, so I was looking for a zucchini cake; found this one and have made it for many years. It's still my favourite. I usually check with a light finger pressure for bounce back or I use a toothpick for doneness as I find 45 minutes in the oven is not enough for my oven.
