Zucchini Cake
Chef:  Alcina Grell - Braman, OK          Category:  Desserts

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 cup pecans

Directions: Sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Beat eggs until light. Gradually beat in brown sugar and honey until light and fluffy. Add oil and yogurt. Stir in sifted mixture. Add zucchini and pecans. Bake in 350°F oven for 40 to 45 minutes in greased and floured 13x9x2 inch pan.

Notes: For frosting I add hot water (or milk) to 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar until thin. Put on cake when warm. This makes a glaze. This is our family's favorite cake.
