A lovely zingy, fresh and moist cake, with the flavour of lemon – you can’t taste the zucchini in this at all!

Ingredients (makes 1 cake)

  • 1 1/2 cups Plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • pinch Salt
  • 1 cup Finley shredded zucchini (leave all moisture in - don't remove!)
  • 1/4 cup Apple sauce
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 TBS Lemon juice
  • 1 TBS Lemon zest
  • 1 cup Icing sugar
  • 2 TBS Lemon juice
  • 1 TBS Lemon zest


  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl combine sugar, zucchini, cooking oil, egg, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Stir to combine.
  3. Add dry ingredients to zucchini mixture; stir just until combined.
  4. Spoon batter into greased bread pan.
  5. Bake at 180 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown and just set.
  6. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 min, then remove from pan and cool completely.
  7. Once cool, combine ingredients for glaze and drizzle over the cake


If the cake begins to brown too much during the cooking process, loosely cover the cake with alfoil to prevent it Browning more Store in an air tight container

  • Looks yummy, thanks for sharing your recipe


  • Pity that there is a difference between the ingredients and the cooking method. Otherwise I would be trying this recipe very soon. Thanks for trying to share.


  • Unusual combo


  • Yummy


  • The ingredients call for apple sauce but the method calls for cooking oil. Bit confused but it does look great.


  • the recipe asks cooking oil, but there is no cooking oil listed as an ingredient so how much do i put in???


  • Ummmmm…. very interesting. Not a cake choice I had ever considered before.


  • I tried lemon cake.But never thought about adding zucchini.Great way to feed kids veggies.


  • My mum just gave me a whole bunch of fresh lemons off her lemon tree so definitely going to give this a go! Plus added veg for the kids, winner. Thanks!


  • I had a lemon zucchini cake many years ago but lost the recipe, I’ll try this one, looks amazing.


  • Please may I know how much oil is needed, thanks


  • A good way to at veg.


  • Thank you for sharing. I like the addition of zucchini


  • I love using zuccini in cakes. It adds moisture to the texture but doesn’t leave any zuccini taste. A great way to get more vegies into kids.


  • Looks delicious thanks for sharing your recipe
