I really like this recipe with zucchini, because it isn't as greasy as most zucchini "bread" recipes. Sometimes I add raisins, instead of walnuts, which I think goes really well with the zucchi...

Notice that a lot of reviews describe this cake as "moist". Well, that's not the word I would use. I'd go with "wet". Or maybe "gooey". It's also sickeningly sweet. I used only one and a ha...

This (carrot) cake was absolutely delicious! I added a little bit of flaked coconut and my little ones devoured it, even my picky 5 year old! I was searching for a carrot cake that didn't use as...
