Zucchini Spice Cake

Sharing is caring!

I created this recipe to use up a bumper crop of zucchini and to get my kids to eat more fruits and veggies without them knowing it. It is a dense cake reminiscent of carrot cake. I frequently add in an extra cup of stir-ins. Raisins, flake coconut, and walnuts or pecans are favorites.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup pine nuts

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

Mix Brussels sprouts, bacon, onion, olive oil, garlic powder, cayenne, and salt together in a large bowl. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

Roast in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), about 40 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven. Toss with pine nuts and serve.
