We got our first zucchini out of the garden last week and you would have thought I won the lottery I was so excited.  It kind of snuck up on me, hidden behind one of the tomato plants and man, when I found that baby, it was awesome!

I immediately starting thinking of all sorts of zucchini recipes I wanted to make but landed on this one – a gorgeous Zucchini Bundt Cake with Orange Glaze.

There is something about zucchini recipes that make me happy.  It’s amazing how a simple vegetable can be so versatile.  Brownies, cakes, cookies, bread, quiche – I think zucchini goes with everything :)

The extra moisture that the zucchini provides to this cake is outstanding. This may be the most perfectly moist cake I’ve ever tried.

I love how delicate this cake is despite the incredible mositure. It feels like a true delicacy.

The fresh orange juice and orange zest really brighten up this beautiful bundt cake.  I love seeing the specks of orange throughout the cake as well as the glaze – little bits of bright, fresh flavor.

This cake disappeared far too fast and we are now all eagerly awaiting our next zucchini – fresh from the garden!
