ZUCCHINI BARS WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
My neighbors have kept me stocked with zucchini this summer and I’m so grateful! This is a super easy recipe for zucchini bars and this moist sheet cake is topped with the perfect cream cheese frosting!
All of my zucchini recipes call for 2 cups of shredded zucchini, so I buy the pint freezer bags and fill them with 2 cups. I freeze them and then I am covered through the winter! I grab out a bag and let it thaw on a plate for a couple of hours before I use it. I love that I can whip up these delicious bars up in no time!
Now let me introduce you to one of the best bar recipes to welcome in the Fall season!
