Health Benefits of Zucchini

Zucchini is a good source of many nutrients such as protein, thiamine, folate, phosphorus, vitamin B6, manganese, and copper. It may also aid in weight loss since it has dietary fiber, which reduces hunger and slows weight gain in the long run.

It is also rich in antioxidants, which strengthens the bones because of the magnesium, and vitamin K. Zucchini lowers blood sugar levels and helps increase insulin sensitivity. It promotes healthy digestion, which minimizes constipation risks and symptoms of different gut disorders.

It improves your vision since it is rich in vitamin A, lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin C, which prevents the risk of age-related eye diseases. Zucchini keeps thyroid hormone levels stable and may have anticancer properties.

It reinforces heart health because of the fiber, potassium, and carotenoid found in the zucchini, which reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and prevent other risk factors for heart disease.

Notes

Vegetable oil adds to the moisture of the cake. It is easier for the cake to be removed out of the pan if you use parchment paper. You could always add textures such as chocolate chips and raisins. Don’t over mix the batter to prevent from having stiff cake. Use the cake toothpick test by inserting a toothpick in the cake; if it comes out clean then, it is done.
