I'll start from the fact that Zucchini cake recipe на сайте есть уже давно и пользуется большой популярностью. И поскольку сезон овощей уже не за горами, на этот раз я хочу поделиться с вами необычайно вкусным рецептом апельсинового цуккини-кекса с маком.

Cupcake is completely unlike anything (on the above mentioned including!). It is moderately juicy (but not wet), very delicate, the texture is unusual, the density is optimal. It is easy to guess the citrus notes, and in combination with poppy and "fresh" aftertaste - it's just something with something ...

The idea, of course, has long been not new, but in my author's :) interpretation Zucchini-cake * Sounded like this: with orange peel and poppy seeds. To the last, I in general became very imbued with recently.

Yes, by the way: the dough is very suitable for baking cakes, and for biscuits (a chic cake is obtained if you smear the cakes Cream of mascarpone and sour cream).

Больше ничего говорить не буду. Просто бегите за цуккини и пеките этот чудесный кекс с маком!

*Of course, you can use zucchini instead of zucchini. No difference. Just one moment: a dark scoop of grated zucchini will give an interesting shade of a cake :)

Orange zucchini-cake with poppy: recipe


  • Flour in / c - 260-280 g;
  • Zucchini (grated meat without juice) - 300 g;
  • Poppy - 50 g;
  • Eggs (С1) - 3 pcs;
  • butter - 90 g;
  • Vegetable oil - 90 ml;
  • sugar cane - 150 g;
  • baking powder - 1 tsp;
  • salt - ½ tsp;
  • orange peel 1;
  • vanilla extract - optional.


Zucchini (clean or not - at your discretion) grate on a fine grater, give a little stand, then squeeze the juice.

Sift the flour with baking powder, add salt, mix.

Melt butter, add to it vegetable. Cool the mixture.

Eggs beat up with sugar until fluffy and increase in volume. Do not stop whipping, pour oil in portions, add orange peel. Pour flour mixture, mix.

Add the dough and grated zucchini to the dough, mix thoroughly (but not for long).

Pour the dough into prepared form (round, as for biscuit, d ~ 20 cm or brick) and bake in preheated to 180 degrees oven for about an hour. Time may be required and more depending on the form, so I recommend checking the readiness of a wooden skewer.

Ready-made orange zucchini-cake with poppy seeds should be cooled a little before getting out of the mold. Then put on the grate until completely cooled.

If you bake a cake, then the cake can be cut into 2 or 3 parts after cooling.
