Every Mom is trying to get her kids to eat veggies, at least until they can understand on their own the benefits of healthy choices. Breads and loaves are a great vehicle for hidden (if they must be!) vegetables. This time of year, pumpkin and zucchini are the obvious choices for a seasonal treat. So SWEETTABLESCAPES tried this recipe from Martha Stewart and enjoyed the added health bonus of some spelt flour. This is a very moist and delicious cake! Enjoy!!
