A few days ago, I was out in the garden and discovered a huge zucchini. It was the first of the season and had tried to hide from me under the leaves. My children were less than thrilled when I brought my giant zucchini into the house. It is not their favorite vegetable! I decided to check out Pinterest to see if there were any unique zucchini recipes that my children would enjoy. I stumbled upon a ton of zucchini recipes that I want to try but the one I chose for this weekend was a lemon zucchini cake recipe with a lemon glaze on top.
Some people might call this lemon zucchini cake recipe a quick bread but I think it is sweeter than a traditional quick bread recipe, especially with the lemon glaze on top. If you want your cake recipe to be a tad less sweet, just skip the glaze. This easy dessert recipe was actually a huge hit with both the kids and the husband, none of whom like zucchini. I can kid myself into thinking this tasty summer dessert is actually healthy seeing as it has both fruit AND vegetable in it, right? This lemon zucchini cake recipe will actually make TWO 9 x 5 inch cakes so cut the recipe in half if needed!
