Eat Local!

October 21st, 2009 was Hot Yam's 3rd annual Eat Local! event. Our Yams cooked up delicious treats for all to enjoy. The event was a huge success with great turn outs. Our appetizing zucchini cakes sure made many tummies happy and satisfied!

So without further ado, here is the aforementioned mouth-watering zucchini cake recipe!

Zucchini Cake

18 tbs flaxseed meal (3:1 water/seeds, boiled until eggy)
9 cups granulated sugar
6 c vegetable oil
12 cups coarsely grated raw zucchini (food processor!)
18 tsp vanilla
18 c flour
6 tsp salt
6 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp cinnamon
3 tsp nutmeg
icing sugar for dusting

1. Grease pans. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and dry spices.
3. Mix in the sugar and wet ingredients: egg substitute, vanilla,
oil. (The recipe says "mix dry ingreds, then wet, then stir wet into
dry" but that dirties too many pans for me.)
4. Mix in the zucchini.
5. Bake for ~60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. The
bread should still be moist in the middle, just not gooey.
6. Cool before removing from the pan.
7. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
(Stay tuned Yammers! As the rest of the recipes are to follow..)
