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.
