Delicious. Took me about an hour to cook it. The icing is a little too lemon-y so I may only put 1tblsp next time. Came out looking so good that my toddler took a bite out of it while it cooled! It's moist and fluffy--maybe the graham crumbs helped with that--otherwise I don't know what they do for the recipe. I didn't taste them. Thanks for sharing!
Just made this recipe--it was so good, I made it again as a gift for my brother--he loved it, too.
Very moist - almost greasy... will make it 2 cups flour & 1 1/4 cup oil next time. I think it needs a bit more spice so will add cinnamon & 1 tsp. lemon zest in future. Suggest folding in zucchini after mixing.
