To avoid shredding carrots when making carrot cake, I put pieces of cut raw carrot into my blender, along with the eggs and oil called for in the recipe, then blend until they're finely chopped. —June Dearman, Canton, Ohio
This moist cake combines shredded zucchini, carrots and beets with chocolate chips for a deliciously different dessert. It's a sweet reward for the time you spent weeding and watering your garden.
