Zucchini and Loaf cake
Every recipe tells a story, this cake always amazes people and tends to become a conversation piece! The zucchini keeps it moist and its light soft fluffy and not very sweet. A perfect tea cake. If you must ice it, a cream cheese frosting makes the perfect match. My family eats it with a slice of cheddar. The one in the picture is a sage cheddar which pairs well.
