Zucchini and Orange Marmalade Tea Cake

Our charge nurse brought these huge zucchinis to work to give away. Apparently she didn’t know they were growing this big since they were hidden underneath some huge leaves. I used 1/3 for vegetable stew so I still have plenty left which I thought I’d try this Tartine recipe for Zucchini and Orange Marmalade Tea Cake (substituting apricot jam as the recipe suggests).

I think I put too much shredded zucchini so the cake ended up more moist and doughy that it probably should have been but I love Tartine’s recipe for the topping, since it’s covered with sugar, it makes the top nice and toasty looking and a bit sweet and crunchy.

It still tasted okay, just wasn’t very pretty.
