This Takes the Cake

MY NEIGHBOR had given me some zucchini from his garden, so it was the perfect opportunity to bake a chocolate zucchini cake. I mixed the batter, poured it into a baking pan and put it in the oven.

The cake came out looking splendid, so I decided to cut two large pieces for my neighbor and his wife. As I was slicing into it, I suddenly heard a clunk. I used a spatula to remove the slice but saw nothing unusual.

I cut another piece and heard the same thing. I loosened the bottom of the cake with a spatula…and there was my mixing spoon!

Neither the spoon nor the cake was harmed in any way, but we sure got a good laugh out of it. —Sandy Flick, Toledo, Ohio
