Carrot and Zucchini Bars

This one is another Six Sisters Stuff recipe that been modified because I didn't have honey or the ingredients for the topping :-(

The orignial recipe is here.

This turned out pretty well!  Pretty yummy!


  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup honey  -- I didn't have this so I used Nutella...don't laugh it was the only thing I could think of and it turned out really well!
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  •  Duncan Hines (or other brand) cream cheese frosting

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, oil, honey (or nutella), and vanilla. Don’t worry about clumps of the brown sugar, those will dissolve as it sits while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Then fold in the carrot and zucchini.
    2. In another bowl combine add the flour, baking powder, ginger, and baking soda. Whisk to blend together.
    3. Add to flour mixture to the wet mixture. Stir just until combined. Spread batter into an ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
    4. Bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
    5. Once the cake is cooled spread the frosting.
