Lemony Zucchini Cake


This was the dessert course for my St. Patrick's Day Dinner Party, and it was a huge hit. I'm sure you've heard (or read) me talk about lemon zest before, but it really is a magical ingredient, brightening up an entire dish and taking it to the next level. If you don't like/want lemon, you can reduce the zest for just a hint of flavor, or use orange zest for this recipe. I used oil here for richness, but you can always substitute applesauce or a pureed banana for a healthier version.
