For the last day of BM# 43 under Healthy Desserts for kids , I made this Chocolate Zucchini Cake from King Arthur Site. I replaced a cup of all purpose flour with whole wheat flour . The Zucchini in the cake gave it a moist and gooey texture and everyone in the house loved it. No one could even predict the presence of Zucchini in it. This is a wonderful idea to incorporate veggies in the cake and make it healthy for kids.So let's start the recipe.yum
