zucchini slice.

never underestimate the beauty that is zucchini. can't say i've gone as far as to add it to my cake batter to beat the dryness, but this zucchini slice, once made, will have you coming back for more. I'll even go so far to say that i've had it for two lunches and two dinners...in a row! judge away. it's been the star of a few instagram pics as of late so i felt the need to share the recipe love. it's easy peasy and completely morish. vintage floral and nz ironstone plate, optional.

zucchini slice

375g zucchini (around 3 medium size)
1 large onion
1 carrot
small can of corn
4 rashers of bacon (optional)

Looks delicious! I actually bake a chocolate cake with zucchini, it is awesome and it really makes the cake moist. You also don't have to use as much butter or oil so it's tres healthy ;)

You have read my mind,I have been wanting to make zucchini slice recently. I used to bake enough to feed 65 kids when I was a childcare cook years ago. I will give this a whirl as I have some fresh out of the garden.
I did eat a beautifully moist zucchini cake on the weekend, i highly recommend you try it.

Zucchini slice is the bomb! That recipe sounds just like the one I use! Sometimes I add pumpkin for extra yumminess :D
