I never liked zucchini in anything until I tried this cake. It was moist, succulent, rich, and just downright decadent. I had two pieces of this right out of the oven and I could only finish part of them. After my brother lost his homecoming game last night in a miserable defeat, a slice of this phenomenal cake cheered him right up. This is a SPENDIFFEROUS recipe and I'm never trying another for zucchini cake again. Thanks for sharing Ani!

I wasn't sure how my husband would like this cake - not usually his kind of thing - but he LOVED it. I was pleased with how moist it turned out and I loved the hint of orange flavor. The only substitutions I made were: applesauce for 2/3 of the butter, and Splenda for 3/4 of the sugar - just to make it a bit lower in calories. This is a wonderful cake - thanks for the recipe!

Nice hint of orange. I used 1 cup of sugar with 3 Tbs orange juice for the glaze. Easier glaze without having to cook it.
