Orange Marmalade Zucchini Gingerbread

I'm sure that you are all very sick of seeing zucchini posts on my blog but this really is the last one.  What a way to end my record breaking zucchini year with my delicious new gingerbread cake recipe perfect for autumn.  You really do have to like the "gingerbread" flavor because this is very "gingerbreadish".  A dollop of whipped cream is a must for this dessert.

Printable Recipe

1/4 cup butter (melted)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup molasses
2 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup orange juice
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins
sweetened whipped cream for topping (after completely cooled)

In a large bowl combine the eggs, sugars, molasses, butter, sour cream, marmalade & orange juice - mix just until completely combined.  (If you like you may sift the flour, spices, salt baking soda & powder - I don't always sift but it is best if you do).  Add the flour, spices, salt baking soda & powder and mix until combined.  Finally, stir in with a wooden spoon the zucchini & raisins.  Pour into a sprayed/buttered square Pyrex baking dish (see pictures above).

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40+ minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).  Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack.

You may eat this gingerbread plain but I prefer this cake with a dollop of whipped cream.
IMPORTANT:  If you are using whipped cream - the cake MUST be completely cooled before serving otherwise the whipped cream will melt on contact).
