Libby's Zucchini Cake

I got this recipe from Libby years ago and have enjoyed it a lot.   Craig came to visit us for a few days this week and brought zucchini so I made the cake.  Clair, Jen, and Grayson came yesterday so we all had a chance to enjoy the cake.  One of the best things about this recipe is that it needs no frosting although it is delicious with a cream cheese frosting or any other kind, and you can make some variations using things that you like, such as chocolate chips, raisens, nuts, and this time I used cinnamon chips.  I also modified it by using half the oil called for and replacing it with applesauce.  Turned out very moist and delicious.
