Zucchini Coffee Cake



I am still keeping up with the zucchini that my very nice neighbor brings me. My own plant may be producing soon and I will need to keep the zucchini creativity going! LOL…. One of these blog posts I will gather together all my zucchini recipes and share them with you. But for now, I will share this zucchini coffee cake recipe that I made this morning for the family. I also served fresh organic peaches that I got from my Azure order.. yum, yum!!

 

Zucchini Coffee Cake

1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 ¼ cups oats

1 cup Sucanat

1t baking soda

1t cinnamon

½ t salt

2 cups shredded zucchini

½ cup butter, softened

¼ c yogurt

1t vanilla

2 eggs

 

Topping:

¾ cup cane juice crystals

½ cup whole wheat pastry flour

½ cup oats

½ t cinnamon

¼ cup butter, softened

 

 

This is a very easy coffee cake to make. Combine all of the cake ingredients into your Kitchen Aid or Bosch bowl (or use a mixing bowl and a hand mixer) and blend until it is well combined. The batter will be thick. Spoon and spread this into a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Combine the dry ingredients for the topping and use a fork or your (clean) hands to mix in the butter until it is crumbly. Sprinkle the topping over the cake. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40minutes.

  4. Crystal,


    This sounds yummy- I will have to try it since I am still pulling zucchini from the EIGHT zucchini plants my overzealous husband planted :) I have been making these incredible zucchini brownies that are just... ... ... there are no words to describe how good they are. Suffice it to say I can only make them once every couple of weeks. Thanks for the recipe!


    Love,

  6. I love your blog and I am always excited reading it everyday since I am a stay-home wife and a mommy of a 3 months old baby,I learn a lot from it and I am so grateful that I found you because you have helped me in so many ways.Anyway,I just started baking, I am from Asia,we don't bake a lot because our weather is hot and most of us don't have an air condition in our house ,so when I got here I love to start new things including baking and do a lot of cooking. I really don't know what is Sucanat, and where can I buy it?

    Just by reading all this recipes makes me hungry :-)

    Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me.
