"I've taken my old chocolate zucchini cake recipe, cut out almost all of the bad stuff and loaded it up with so many fruits and vegetables that it's more like a baked salad than a cake. The funny thing is that it turned out so moist and tasty that you'll find yourself fighting with the kids for the last piece. Try it once and you'll be a believer too!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and cloves in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat together the eggs, sugar, applesauce, vegetable oil, apple juice concentrate, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in the dry mixture alternately with the milk, then add the zucchini, carrot, raisins, and dates; stir until just moistened. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack.

This turned into a sliceable FUDGE PUDDING CAKE (!) by a happy accident of using only 1-1/2 C. flour (instead of 2-1/2). Also two substitutions: (a) buttermilk instead of the unavailable apple j...

Made muffins instead but LOVE this recipe! I didn't have all the ingredients so tweeked - but that's the fun of cooking! Used sucanat instead of sugar, skipped most of the milk (maybe used 2 TBL...
