Why This Recipe Works
Baked goods are a great way to use up zucchini. Because of its high moisture content, zucchini produces a moist cake. However, if not used correctly, zucchini can leave baked goods extremely wet and gummy. By removing a majority of the juice from the zucchini, along with most other sources of moisture, and lowering the fat, we were able to up our zucchini content from 12 ounces to 1 1/2 pounds without sacrificing a properly moist and tender crumb.
