Zucchini Spice Cake

Demonstrated by Dan Weinreich to applause. From Marian Morash's Victory Garden Cookbook.

1 1/2 c flour
1 t baking power
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t ground ginger
1/2 t salt
2 eggs
1 c packed dark brown sugar
2/3 c vegetable oil (or to lighten I substitute a 50:50 mix of oil and apple sauce)
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 c grated zucchini (or obviously, any summer squash)

Sift together dry ingredients. Beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla together. Beat in the dry ingredients. Stir in the grated squash and pour into greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350F for approximately 45 minutes.
