This zucchini cake is a dense cake a bit like carrot cake. I frequently add in some extras like sultanas or coconut or walnuts - if you want to do this, add them with the zucchini.


Serves: 24 

  • 3 cups grated unpeeled zucchini
  • 3 cups (375g) plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups (440g) white sugar
  • 1 cup (155g) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 23x33cm cake tin.
  2. Place grated zucchini in a colander and set aside to drain.
  3. Whisk together the flour, bicarb, baking powder, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl until well blended.
  4. Bake until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting.
  5. Beat the eggs, applesauce, oil and vanilla in a separate bowl until smooth. Fold in the flour mixture, then stir in the zucchini. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin.
