Zucchini Cake

This recipe is taken from a local church cookbook. My grandma gave me a zucchini the other day. I wasn’t sure what to make with it. My mom suggested that I make Zucchini Cake. This recipe is easy to make and great in the summer for dessert or even for breakfast with a cup of tea or coffee. If you don’t like the green from the zucchini you can peel them. I personally, do not mind and actually like if I can see the zucchini. I suggest grating the zucchini in the food processor, but doing it with a hand grater works well also. Another thing you can do is add walnuts or raisins to the cake. I have never tried this before, but the cookbook said you can if you would like. Or you could sprinkle the walnuts or raisins on top. ( Sorry the picture is sooo bad, It tastes A LOT better then the picture makes it look) Enjoy!
