3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups crystalline brown sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil (the citrus infused oils are great used here!)

2 cups grated unpeeled zucchini
3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon chili pepper blend seasoning
1 tablespoon diced candied ginger
1 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs well, then whisk in sugar, oil and vanilla. With silicone spatula, stir in grated zucchini. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, soda, baking powder and Zip. Blend into zucchini mixture along with the ginger and nuts. Pour into lightly oiled tube pan or a 10 inch springform pan.
