When I have a lot of squash (any kind) or fruit, like figs, I make this and put it up in portions so I don't have to eat it all at one time. Then I freeze and eat some later. I have had this recipe for over 30 years and through everything (moving, etc.), I have always made sure I kept this.


  • 1/2 cup melted margarine or butter (I use butter)
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg (I use different spices for different vegetables and fruits)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, plain or self rising (I use what I have)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I usually make the flour 1/2 each instead)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup raisins (or any dried fruit you have on hand)
  • 1 1/2 cups Bran Buds or similar cereal (I like Grape Nuts)
  • 2 1/2 cups grated cooked and drained yellow zucchini or any vegetable or fruit you are using (for a little more moist, I add 1/4 cup more)


Mix oil, sugar, and eggs and toss about 1 minute (you can do this by hand)

Add your fruit or vegetable and mix well (can be done by hand).

Stir in all the rest of the ingredients.


(I take all my dry ingredients and sift them through a screen strainer so they are well mixed - not more than 2 times are needed.)

Pour into a 12x9 inch baking pan or can use 2 loaf pans. Spray pans with cooking spray and sprinkle a tiny bit of flour distribute the flour by tapping sides of pan.

Bake at 325 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Take out and let cool for 15 minutes and try. Good hot or cold.

Source: A friend gave me this recipe and said nobody would know it was squash. In our office, nobody liked squash, but they could not tell there was any in it. We had a good laugh when we told them.

This one makes the whole zucchini season for us!

Cake Ingredients

Frosting Ingredients


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a cookie sheet by either greasing well or spraying with no-stick spray.

Mix the first five ingredients until creamy. Blend in flour and baking powder until well incorporated and then fold in coconut, walnuts and zucchini. Spread evenly in the cookie sheet and bake about 20 minutes, or until cake springs back when touched near the middle.

While still quite warm, mix all frosting ingredients and spread on the cake.

Cool completely and cut into bar or diamond shapes.
