This dessert is the perfect transition into fall. Use up your leftover summer zucchini, and start thinking cinnamon, apples, and cool mornings. A slight variation on a popular dessert, this zucchini cake brings more cinnamon and just a touch of brandy for subdued sweetness.
Ingredients: 3 eggs, 2 1/2 cups finely chopped zucchini, 2 cups flour, 1 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oil, 1/3 cup water, 2-3 tbsp brandy, 3 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla, powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease and flour 13x9x2 baking pan.
Boil water and pour over chopped zucchini in large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients to zucchini and beat on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, 1 min. Beat on medium speed for 2 min, scraping bowl occasionally.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 40-50 min, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Let cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon.
