Try this recipe but instead of using Zuchinni, use telegraph cucumbers and don't peel it just like the zuchinni.

Similar to a carrot cake, sort of.

2C flour,
2teaspoons baking soda,
1teaspoon salt,
quarter teaspoon baking powder,
3teaspoon cinnamon,
3 eggs,
1C cooking oil,
1 and a half C white sugar,
2C grated zucchini,
2teaspoons vanilla essence,
1C chopped nuts.
METHOD mix grated zucchini, sugar, vanilla, oil, nuts and eggs together.
Sift together salt, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and soda.
Add to zucchini mixture. cook in lined ring tin at 180 for 45 minutes. ice with cream cheese icing.
no need to peel itjust cut the ends off and grate!
if you have a food processor with the grater attachment it's the easiest and fastest way to do it.
you need 3 large zucchini's to get 3 cups worth.

2 beaten eggs
2TBSPs sour milk
1tsp vanila essence
Beat butter & sugar. Dissolve soda in milk & add with eggsto butter & sugar. Stir in mashed bananas & minced cucumbers, sifted flour, milk, b/soda, salt & vanilla.
Bake moderate oven in sandwich tins (I'd use a normal cake tin). When cold put together with lemon cheese & decoratetop with slices of banana & minced cucumber.
