1998 was a really good year for food apparently. One day I went to the library to pick up some books I had on hold and low and behold they were selling a Taste of Home cookbook for 4 dollars. I am a sucker for old cookbooks. I scrounged up 4 dollars in change because I am ghetto like that and never carry cash. Away I went with my cookbook and became fast friends with my new recipes.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 package cream cheese softened
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners' sugar
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Combine oil, and eggs; add to dry ingredients and mix well. Add zucchini; stir until thoroughly combined. Fold in walnuts if desired. Pour into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 in baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool. Combine and mix ingredients for frosting and frost cake once cool. Serve and Enjoy!
