Garden Harvest Cake

"Zucchini, carrot, and apples add moisture and flavor, eliminating the need for excess butter and oil. This simple garden harvest cake only takes about 10 minutes to prepare the batter, and I love it for breakfast." —Jennifer Dunklee, Medford, Mass.

  • Yield: 9 servings (serving size: 1 slice)

Ingredients

  • 4.5 ounces all-purpose flour (1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup grated peeled Granny Smith apple (about 1 medium)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
