The cake here could win blue ribbons for every count. Orange zucchini cake is unusual in the ingredients it uses, and may well be the most delectable and rewarding cake recipe you’ll ever try.
The shredded, unpared zucchini, combined with the flecks of orange-gold citrus rind gives a lovely, confetti-like appearance to this dessert.
Serve as a dessert for family or company with hot tea or coffee flavored with a paper-slim orange slice, or as after-school snacks with tumblers of healthful fresh orange juice.
