      I made this as small cup cakes which worked really well. Also added a little ginger and topped some with a sprinkle of demerara and pumpkin seeds instead of the recommened icing.

      Excellent recipe! A wonderfully flavorful cake which everyone enjoyed. I used the food processor to make the ground almonds. Topping with toasted almonds made the cake look as good as it tasted. Not only did friends enjoy they asked for the recipe. Adding this one to my 'zucchini favorites' Thanks Dotty for another of your great tasting recipes!

      I made this cake yesterday and took it to a neighborhood barbeque. I live in Switzerland and my Swiss friends usually complain that American food is too sweet. But even with the icing on it, they loved this cake and many took seconds. Thanks for a great recipe!
