Beet and Carrot Cake
This recipe turned out great, with a few modifications. I used 2 cups of boiled and pureed beets (instead of canned), added 1/2 tsp nutmeg amd 1 tsp vanilla, and substituted 1 c apple sauce for 1 c of the oil (reducing the oil in the recipe to 1/2 cup). I spooned the batter into greased muffin pans, and baked at 350 for about 25 minutes. The muffins (or cupcakes) turned out moist and delicious, and my kids loved them. I must say that I was excited about the vivid magenta batter, but in the end, the muffins only had a tinge of red on top - the insides were a typical carrot cake colour. What a great way to use some excess beets and carrots, and sneak more veggies into my kids!

Zucchini Cobbler
Delicious! My kids and husband didn't know that it wasn't made with apples. I used a different topping (my stand-by apple crumble topping) only because I prefer crumble to cobbler, but followed the recipe exactly for the zucchini filling. I removed the seeds as another reviewer suggested, and the cooked slices really did look just like apples. I will definitely make this again when I have a surplus of zucchini. Thanks for the great recipe!
