Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Overripe bananas will provide the best flavor for this cake. If all you have are under ripe bananas, bake them in a 300° F oven 30 to 40 minutes or until peels are black and bananas are soft.
  • tip 2
    Use a cheese grater or food processor to shred the zucchini.
