Very moist and flavorful - exactly what a bundt cake should be! I made some changes - no raisins (personal preference), 1/2c sugar (still plenty sweet), I only had low fat vanilla yogurt, no bread crumbs, dark brown sugar, and added rum extract to the drizzle. Yum, yum, yum! It's going in the Keeper File. It's hard to find really good deserts low in saturated fat and cholesterol so thanks for sharing!

Excellent recipe! Really moist and tasty! The streusel gives it a flavor kick without making it overly sweet. I intended to slice it and take it to work, but my "tester" piece turned into two, and my husband I both snacked on it throughout the day, so I had to make a second one for work! It was a definite hit! I did omit the walnuts (personal preference) and the breadcrumbs. The only reason I could think for them to be there was to help the cake release from the pan, but I used a baking spray and no issues.

One of the best zucchini cakes I've ever eaten! Loved that it used less sugar and added in yogurt! Great for using up that extra zucchini! I subbed in gluten-free flour and dairy-free yogurt but otherwise, did everything the same!

Wonderfully moist. The icing turned out weird (runny and brown). Otherwise worth making again!

Blah. Should be labeled as a "coffee cake". The rating would be a 1 if I rated it as a dessert cake.

this turned out really good , the only thing I did different was, I did not add the bread crumbs, could not figure out why it was needed.

This was really tasty! It is very important to get the zucchini as dry as possible; I put mine in a colander to let it drain. The only change I made was to top it with a low-fat cream cheese frosting instead of the glaze. I will be making this again (today, as a matter of fact!)
