Zucchini White Cake


Zucchini White Cake

This is an old recipe given to me by a friend's late mother. It is fantastic! I hadn't made it before today, and I'll certainly make it more often now I've tasted it. So delicious.

Preheat oven to 325º F.
Grease 9x13 pan.

Melt 1 cup butter, and cool.

Beat together:
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 or 3 cups grated zucchini (or yellow summer squash) - frozen and thawed worked fine
1/2 of a 20-oz. can crushed pineapple
Add cooled butter

In a separate bowl mix:
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Add to butter mixture, and beat well.

Pour into pan, and bake about an hour.

Frosting:
1/4 cup soft butter
1/3 cup sour cream
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar

  2. You are so welcome, One Woman's Journey. There are a couple chocolate zucchini cake recipes on the sidebar, but this is very different - and so delicious! I'll be interested to hear how you like it if you bake one.

    Thank you, Layanee. The sheep seemed like he wanted to be photographed. :<) And the cake is yummy!

    I have a summer squash which I was going to use for soup but I think I like this recipe idea better!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
