Whole Wheat Carrot Zucchini Cake

Even though the snow piles in our yard are still here, it is officially SPRING.

One of my all-time favorite spring desserts is this whole wheat carrot zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting.

In addition to the veggies in this cake, using whole wheat flour and applesauce adds a great deal of nutritional goodness to this dessert.  It's hard to feel bad eating a slice, knowing I'm getting carrots, zucchini, apples and whole grains in every bite.  

If you're looking for a great Easter dessert, this is it!  It's been a hit every time we've made it.

  7. Yes, it is hard to believe it's spring! Here in New Jersey it's still quite cold, but we are getting some sun and my chives and sage are poking through in the containers from last year. This recipe looks great. Can't wait for the summer zuchinni abundance to try it.
