This Pumpkin Zucchini Cake is literally my new favorite cake. This coming fall I will be yelling from the Colorado mountaintops to move over Starbucks PSL, I have a new pumpkin favorite. And this Pumpkin Zucchini Cake not only looks like heaven it is truly is mouthwateringly delicious. Pumpkin dreams are more than just turning into carriages for princesses they come in cakes as well.
I love cakes! Literally, if I could have cake for every meal I would. And this Pumpkin Zucchini Cake is no exception. I tried to only eat one piece, really I did. But I kept finding myself at the cake plate nibbling little bites here and there. Well, maybe not all of the bites were little. But you know what I mean.
Then I began to just lick the frosting off the cake plate….I know gross. But it is oh so that good.
The zucchini and pumpkin combination makes this cake so moist, there is no such thing of a dry crumbly cake when it comes to this Pumpkin Zucchini Cake, so if that is what you are looking for close the page now, this cake is not meant for you.
