Zucchini Bars/Cake

There’s a place here in Utah called Gardner Village and at Garner Village they have a restaurant called Archibald’s. Now Archibald’s has the best carrot cake I have ever had, next to my great grandma’s. So anytime I get the chance to go there I have to get a piece of carrot cake I do. After making this recipe for zucchini bars (which I’m also adding cake to the name), it comes in at a close second to Archibald’s carrot cake. I got the recipe from Kenzie over at Kenzie’s Kitchen. Now the recipe calls for cooking this in a sheet cake pan. I cooked it in a 9 x 13 dish and cooked 15 minutes longer. I’m sure this recipe would work if you substituted carrots for the zucchini also. I have to thank Kenzie. I can now fulfil my craving for Archibald’s carrot cake with this Zucchini Cake recipe.
