Zucchini Coffee Cake

  • This is a very delicious and moist coffee cake.  It is also very simple to put together.  I think the hardest part is shredding the zucchini!  I found this recipe off of Pinch of Yum and I am sure glad I did!!  The little bit of orange zest adds so much to this coffee cake.  It really brightens it up.  My kids simply devoured it (and so did I).  This would be great for a brunch or a Sunday breakfast or even dessert.
