Zucchini Bars/Cake

by Laura

There’s a place here in Utah that is called Gardner Village. And at Garner Village they have a restaurant there called Archibald’s. Now, in my opinion, Archibald’s has the best carrot cake I have ever had, next to my great grandma’s. So anytime I get the chance to go there I have to get a piece of carrot cake, I do. After making this recipe for zucchini bars/cake (which I’m also adding cake to the name), it comes in at a close second to Archibald’s delicious carrot cake.

I got the recipe for this cake from Kenzie over at Kenzie’s Kitchen. Now the recipe calls for cooking this in a sheet cake pan. I cooked it in a 9 x 13 cake pan and also cooked 15 minutes longer. I’m sure this recipe would work if you substituted carrots for the zucchini also. I have to thank Kenzie for this wonderful recipe. I can now fulfil my craving for Archibald’s carrot cake with this amazing Zucchini Cake recipe.

I have made these several times and they are delicious! My sister’s favorite cake is the carrot cake at Gardner Village. I made these bars for her and her kids. They gobbled them up! I have decreased the oil a bit as 1 1/2 C seems a bit much. The cake with the frosting is divine.

I made this tonight and loved it! I reduced the ingredients to make an 8-inch cake, and topped it with powdered sugar. Great recipe.
