Wonderful zuchinni cake Evelyn! I made this today to give to my son and his fiance (they both love zuchinni) I did however weight it for more than 1 hour, it was more like half a day, as I when out for about 4 hours, then came home and prepared it as stated, I added in 1/2 tsp cinnamon also. This cake turned out so good, I gave half to my son, and DH and myself had the rest with our evening coffee, we even have a piece for breakfast! thank you so much for suggesting this recipe Evelyn, we all enjoyed it so much, it's a keeper for sure!...Kittencal:)
