Lemon Zucchini Cake W/ Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe @pinch

Member's ChoiceLight and fluffy, this cake is filled with rich lemon flavor. Adding zucchini makes it nice and moist. Plus, hidden veggies never hurt anyone. The creamy frosting is the perfect amount. There's just a thin layer of sweet yumminess. A delicious dessert when trying to find ways to use zucchini in the summer. I love lemon and zucchini... and together... delicious! Easy, fast, and nutritious... somewhat! LOL
