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.
2 Cups grated zucchini
1 Cup oil (or 1/2 Cup and 1/2 Cup applesauce
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 - 8 oz. can crushed pineapple
3 Cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 Cup raisens or chocolate chips
Mix first six ingredients together in a bowl. Mix dry ingredients together and add to wet ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Pour into greased and floured 9 x 13 cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Ice if you choose to do so after it has cooled.
