Zucchini cake and cakes with other vegetables are very popular nowadays, so I wanted to try what it is all about. Like carrot cake, zucchini cake contains zucchini mixed into the dough and is also one of the modern vegetable recipes. Nuts such as walnuts or pecans are also added to the dough, as well as fruits including pineapple, raisins and grated coconut. I tried mascarpone with condensed cream with a little bit of lemon peel and garnished it with pistachios and nuts.
