Awesome cake of Mexican Origin. Very moist because it's chock full of zucchini, and it has the most delicious glaze on top. Hope you enjoy!

With a light, moist texture, orange glaze and kaboom you have a winning recipe! I used a dark cocoa in the batter and did not change anything else. I know a lot of the reviewers felt it needed amped up with orange but I liked the subtle flavor found in the glaze and cake. Just blended so well with our taste buds. Found and made for ZWT8.
