    recipe title: Zucchini and Walnut Cake
    category: Desserts
    keywords: cake, zucchini, walnut
    servings: 8
      1 1/2 c  Walnut pieces
          2 md Zucchini, unpeeled, ends
        1/4 c  Cornstarch
        1/4 c  Brown rice flour
          1 ts Baking powder
          1 pn Salt
          3 lg Eggs
        3/4 c  Sugar
          2 tb Diced candied lemon peel,
               -finely minced
    Powdered sugar Preheat oven to 350F. Butter the sides of an 8 x 2-inch cake pan, line the base with a circle of baking parchment and butter the parchment. Using a nut mill, grind walnuts to flour and set aside. Using the same nut mill, grind zucchini into fine shreds. There should be 1 cup, firmly packed, or 6 ounces. Place in a sieve and press out the liquid. Combine cornstarch, rice flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Beat eggs with sugar until lemon-colored and very thick. A lifted beater should leave a slowly dissolving trail of batter. Using a large rubber spatula, lightly fold in grated walnuts and minced lemon peel, as though mixing a souffle. Fluff up zucchini shreds and fold in. Sift cornstarch-flour mixture over batter and quickly fold in, retaining as much volume as possible. Pour into prepared pan (the batter will be loose) and bake for 40 minutes, until a tester comes out dry. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before unmolding onto a rack. Peel off paper, reverse onto rack right side up, and let cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar before serving. Serves 8.
