I got this recipe from a woman who came to my rummage sale. We got to talking about zucchini-she didn't know what the big squash could be used for. So I sent her some of my favorite zucchini recipes and, in return, she mailed me the recipe for this cake. It's absolutely delicious and I've made it often.

"easy recipe to make. I added some lemon zest. Good cake to serve with strawberries and ice cream. I will probably make again."

"Great recipe! This is one of my favorite go-to cake recipes. It always turns out so well, and everyone loves it. I can be "dressed up" with berries and whipped cream or frosting or ice cream, or it's delicious just as is."

"I have been married almost 28 years and have made this cake so many times. I have my things in storage now and could not find them. This has been so much help and I definitely will make this cake again and again."

"I made this cake last weekend, and it was very very dense and had a bit of a flour taste to it. the only way i would consider making this recipe again would be by altering the recipe a bit. But the kids and my husband liked it, and my dog actually stole the entire cake off the table after I forgot to put away, didn't even leave a crumb...LOL"

"I absolutely LOVE this recipe!! I make it in mini loaves at Christmas, as small gifts to tuck in boxes I need to ship. I get so many requests for it! It has such a wonderful flavor. I have made it with butter, and I have tried substituting margarine. I definately like the butter flavor better, but in a pinch... Would highly recommend this to anyone."
