Cinnamon Swirl Zucchini Bundt Cake ~ A fabulously moist zucchini cake with a cinnamon swirl and topped with a cinnamon glaze!
I thought my garden was going to produce a TON of zucchini, but that has yet to happen. I’m a little bit disappointed, but I did plant yellow summer squash this year and that is multiplying greatly.
Unfortunately I don’t’ know what I was thinking when I planted it. I have no idea what to do with it, so it sits on my cupboard. If you have an recommendations please feel free to share them with me! Can I use it in place of zucchini in recipes?
I have had a few zucchinis so far this year and have made a few fabulous recipes, but this is the first official “new” recipe to come to the blog. I did make a few old ones and rephotograph. Wow, just going to say they needed it BAD. I have a lot of learning to do with photography yet, but man it makes me realize how far I’ve come too!
This cake was a pure work of imagination. I started with a base Zucchini Bundt Cake, took the cinnamon swirl idea from this fabulous Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread and then topped it with the cinnamon glaze inspired by the Cinnamon Frosted Zucchini Bars!
So this is officially a Julie’s Eats & Treats original and I’m proud of it!
If your garden is multiplying zucchini faster than rabbits reproduce….go make this amazing Cinnamon Swirl Zucchini Bundt Cake!
