I’m one of those people that when it comes to baking I can never seem to follow the recipe. I think oooh I know what would go well instead of that! Most of the time, my baking turns out pretty shockingly but then, on very rare occasions, one turns out perfectly! This is one of them. A zucchini cake with lemon cream cheese icing. I adapted the recipe from here.

♥ 2 cups flour
♥ 2 teaspoons cinnamon
♥ 2 teaspoons baking soda
♥ 1 teaspoon salt
♥ 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
♥ 3 eggs
♥ 1 cup white sugar
♥ 1/2 cup vegetable oil
♥ 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
♥ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
♥ 2 cups grated zucchini

I sifted all the dry ingredients into one bowl. In another bowl I whisked the eggs until they were fluffy then added the oil, yoghurt, vanilla extract and zucchini. Mixed all together and then baked at 180deg Celsius until golden brown and popped back when pressed.
I then made a lemon/cream cheese icing and covered with coconut.
I think me running out of oil and using yoghurt instead, made it even better (haha!). I wish you could all taste it with me!
