The bundt pan I had for a long, long time was recently retired due to old age. It had definitely seen better days and was literally not usable. I treated myself to a new and improved version that I picked up at Williams-Sonoma. It’s the Nordic Ware Anniversary Bundt Pan. This zucchini bundt cake baked evenly, and it didn’t get too brown on the outside. I have been avoiding bundt cake recipes (which are so easy) because I didn’t have a good pan. Those days are over!

Zucchini Bundt Cake Recipe Tip
To serve this zucchini bundt cake recipe as a dessert, drizzle it with a tasty lemon glaze.
- Add one tablespoon fresh lemon juice and one tablespoon fresh grated lemon peel to one cup of powdered sugar. Mix well until it’s smooth. It should pour easily, but should not be runny.
- To tie the glaze into the cake, add fresh grated lemon peel to the cake mix (the zest from one lemon.) If you like raisins, adding those would also be delicious, and it would add amazing texture.
