Carrot (& Zucchini) cake



I made this carrot cake 3 times before and it really turned yummy.. the only thing i changed in the recipe was reduced the sugar to 1 cup.. And i added the apple sauce too.

Then one day i came across this recipe of Carrot-Zucchini Cake

I was in the middle of the first Carrot cake recipe when i got the second one! So i just grated 1/2 cup skinned zucchini and reduced the carrot to 2 cups. Also reduced the sugar to 1 cup. Also i didnt add apple sauce this time because i thought Zucchinis have a high water content and it will help to keep the cake moist.

At the end.. both the recipies were delicious! 

I made the cake in 2 loaf pans and took one to my friend Shebi's house where we were having a girls party! Everyone loved it!!

The other loaf was almost finished by my kids and DH! Luckily i had one slice left to take a pic!! LOLs!
