It’s that time of year – the zucchini are coming in. Now I have to figure out what to do with them all. In past years I have canned zucchini garlic dill relish and Zucchini Carrot Ginger Marmalade. A favorite zucchini recipe is the one I came up with for zucchini cakes. They are a delicious way to use up excess squash. This year I decided to make a Zucchini Spice Bundt Cake to use up some of the zucchini the hubby is bringing me.

How Was the Zucchini Recipe?

This is a mighty tasty way to eat zucchini. The cake is very moist and the spices add a delightful warmth. The chocolate is a lovely complement. I have the feeling this is one of those cakes that will get better as it sits.

It will go well with coffee, tea, or milk. Like the pumpkin spice zucchini cookies I made last year, this cake will make a regular appearance when the zucchini come in.
