Zucchini Spice Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 99
I created this recipe to use up a bumper crop of zucchini and to get my kids to eat more fruits and veggies without them knowing it. It is a dense cake reminiscent of carrot cake. I frequently add in an extra cup of stir-ins. Raisins, flake coconut, and walnuts or pecans are favorites.

Chocolate Swirl Zucchini Sheet Cake

Rating: 4 stars 40
With a unique twist on the favorite chocolate zucchini cake, this recipe adds an attractive swirl of cream cheese that will have everyone asking for more. This cake can easily have other variations. I have made it without the cream cheese swirl/chips topping and have frosted the cake. I have also added other topping such as coconut, nuts, and caramel. You are limited only by your imagination.
