Lemon Zucchini Cake

Zucchini season is almost over people, I think we’re going to make it!  I made this cake for my friend Kent who gave me air conditioning at work in the most improbable situation so I promised him cake.  Thanks Kent!

cake

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup canola oil

3 eggs

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon lemon extract

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini

frosting

2 cups powdered sugar

2 – 3 tablespoons lemon juice

1  For the cake, preheat oven to 325.  Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray for baking.

2  Beat together sugar, oil and eggs until well blended.  Add in lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon extract and beat well.

3  Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Beat for 2 – 3 minutes.  Fold in shredded zucchini.

4  Pour into prepared pan.  Bake 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool in pan 10 – 15 minutes before removing.  Allow to cool completely before frosting.

5  For the frosting, whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Add more or less juice for desired consistency.  Pour over top of cake, allowing to drip down sides.
