How to Make ”Cin’s Super-Moist Zucchini Cake”
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Grease and lightly flour a bundt pan.
Step 3: Combine the eggs, pure vanilla, melted butter, sour cream, olive oil, cake mix, Jell-O, cinnamon, nutmeg, and Splenda in a large mixing bowl. Beat using an electric mixer on medium speed until blended. It is okay even if the mixture may be thick and lumpy.
Step 4: Add in the zucchini and orange juice and blend for another 1 to 2 minutes on medium-high speed. At this point, the mixture should not be lumpy anymore.
Step 5: Sprinkle a little Splenda at the bottom of the pan before transferring the mixture into the prepared bundt pan.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 55 minutes. To check the doneness, insert a toothpick in the middle, and when it comes out clean the cake is done.
Step 7: Remove the cake from the oven and cool onto a wire rack for at least 20 minutes.
Step 8: Then, remove the cake from the pan and set it on a wire rack to cool completely.
Step 9: After the cake is cooled, dust it with powdered sugar.
NOTE: You can add shredded carrots into the butter or you can go all the way by adding Zucchini, Carrots, and Crushed Pineapple and glazing the cake. It is a versatile cake so it is okay to change things up.
