A Solution to the Zucchini Problem

Plant just one zucchini plant and you are in for a bumper crop. Ignore them for a few days and you have a 10 pound monster the next time you look!

Here is my family's favourite way to use up zucchini:

Cream Cheese Zucchini Cake

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 8 ounces cream cheese

Mix these 4 ingredients together well.


  • 1 cup oil
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinammon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teasponns baking powder
  • 1/4 cup nuts (optional)

Bake at 350 F for about one hour.

My wife uses a bundt type spring pan that is generously greased and floured.

The resulting cake never seems to go stale in our household!
