Oh I was so surprised to find this cake was dry. I have made zucchini cakes in the past and they were always so moist. Good flavor though. Read More

I had only 1 zucchini so I halved this recipe. I also don't care for canned frosting so I made Basic Cream Cheese Frosting from this site. I wasn't sure about adding the cloves to the frosting but decided to follow the recipe. Everything about this recipe is delicious! I would definitely make it again! Read More

I followed this recipe to a tee and really enjoyed it despite it not being as moist as I thought it would be. While in the process of making the bar I thought that it may have ended up a bit sweet for us but it wasn t. Not overly sweet at all. I popped half of the end product in the freezer and it freezes beautifully. I ve been enjoying a piece each day with my mid morning coffee. Read More
