    Used different ingredients. The instructions refer to baking soda, but it wasn't listed in the ingredients. I added 1 tsp of baking soda as that's what I use in similar recipes. - 15 May 2010


    Very nice. This makes a lovely tea cake. Quite a strong cinnamon flavour and the zucchini makes for a nice moist texture. - 15 May 2010
