Zucchini Kuchen (Gorgeous Zucchini Cake)

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This zucchini cake recipe is from my grandmother--she used to pass the zucchini through a meat mincer because they had no food processor. The zucchini cake keeps well wrapped in aluminum foil in the refrigerator and can also be frozen."
