Zucchini Cake

I think I've made this cake a hundred times and it comes out perfect every time. It is delish!!!

Zucchini Cake
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups grated zucchini (can also substitute carrots)
1 tsp vanilla extract
  • In a medium bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Set aside.
  • Combine oil and sugar in large mixing bowl. Beat thoroughly with an electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beat well after each addition.
  • Add sifted dry ingredients to egg mixture and beat thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients.
  • Spread batter evenly into well greased and floured 9" x 13" pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until cake tests done. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes. Turn onto cake rack.  Cool completely. Dust with confectioners sugar, if desired. (Actually I just leave mine right in the 9 x 13 and when ready to serve I cut each individual piece and dust with sugar.)
