Zucchini Bread as Cake (Recipe)

We have always tried to have healthy cakes or muffins for the children for their birthdays.  I happened to have a wonderful recipe for zucchini bread and my son wanted a cake in this train pan, so I combined the two and it was delicious.  The whole cake was gone within a day.

Here is the recipe!

Zucchini Bread Cake

Grease and flour your pan.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 cups white sugar

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Add to the mixture:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegetable or olive oil

Stir them, then add:

  • 2 cups zucchini

Stir everything together, then pour the batter into the pan.

Bake 40-70 minutes or until done.  Cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then remove from the pan.  Eat when it is cool enough!

  1. This looks so good. I have never tried a zucchini cake, in fear that my kids wouldn't eat it, but you have me convinced. :-) I am featuring you this week at "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." Be sure to stop by and grab an "I've been featured" button from my sidebar for your blog. The post should go live early Monday afternoon. I hope you will be able to join us again this week. :-)
