ZUCCHINI BANANA CAKE WITH CARAMEL FROSTING

This Zucchini Banana Cake is loaded with fruits and veggies. A layer of caramel frosting makes it an awesome way to eat green veggies.

Drop everything and run to the garden to grab a few of those green veggies that are taking over. Why? Because you need this cake in your life right away!!

Well, if you are gardening challenged like me, go ahead and run to the store to buy a few zucchinis. Thank goodness for farmers, right?

After making this Dark Chocolate Zucchini Bread the other day, I still had leftover shredded zucchini, so I did what any normal person would do. I headed back to the kitchen to bake something else.

1/2 cup brown sugar
