Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (from about half a medium zucchini)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Dust with confectioners' sugar just before serving, if desired.
