  • Total Time: 10 minutes

This Zucchini Bundt Cake topped with Sour Cream Frosting is completely fabulous! It’s the perfect thing to make if your garden is overflowing with zucchini.


Units Scale


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups zucchini puree


  • 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
    Peel your zucchini  and cut into chunks (remove any seeds). Place the chunks into a blender or food processor and blend. You will probably have to stop it a few times and give it a stir before it turns into a puree.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Mix with a wooden spoon to incorporate well.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the melted butter, milk, sugar, eggs and zucchini. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix on medium speed until smooth.
  4. Pour the batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake at 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife or toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Let your cake cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Then set a plate over the top of the pan and invert the cake onto it. Let the cake cool completely.


  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine butter and sour cream, mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and salt and continue mixing until smooth. Spread (or pour) over cake.


  • I usually throw an extra tablespoon or two of sour cream in just because I love the flavor it adds to the frosting. I also like to make my frosting thicker, so it’s a spreadable consistency. You can keep yours thinner, more pourable if you’d like. It’s definitely a personal preference here.
