In this recipe, I made a basic cake batter with healthier ingredients, like pure maple syrup (not that bad, cheap stuff either), organic raisins, whole-wheat pastry flour, walnuts and fresh carrots and zucchini. I promise, your kids will not taste any vegetables, only their sweetness, in the cake. Even though this is a dessert, it's a great way to add vegetables into your family's diet.
Fresh carrots and zucchini are combined into a spiced cake batter baked and topped with an easy lemon cream cheese frosting. Tip: This frosting is great for drizzling, as I have done in my recipe. Simply heat the cream cheese frosting for 30 seconds or until slightly runny, and then drizzle it over the cake, or use the thicker version as is, and spread.
Prep time: 30 minutes | Bake time: 45 minutes | Inactive time: 1 hour | Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes
