    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease and line 2 - 8 inch springform pans. Whisk 2 eggs with the oil and 3/4 cup sugar until white and creamy. Mix in the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Stir in the grated zucchini and carrots. Distribute the mixture between the 2 prepared pans and bake for about 30 mins. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 5-10 mins in the pans then remove from pans and cool on a wire rack.
    2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan and add the remaining sugar, eggs, most of the orange zest and 1/2 cup orange juice. Cook, stirring, over low heat, until the sauce thickens. Set aside to cool.
    3. To finish, beat the cream cheese with the powdered sugar. Stir in 1-2 tbsp orange juice. Put 1/2 of the cake on a plate and coat with the orange sauce. Put the other 1/2 of the cake on top and decorate it with the cream cheese and the remaining orange zest.
