I've been making this for over 20 years. My family LOVES it. I used fresh zucchini and carrots from our garden. It's a definite favorite item in our family. It's NOT diet, but the vegetables are good for you! You can modify to be healthier. I've been making this for over 20 years. My family LOVES it. I used fresh zucchini and carrots from our garden.

  • Very good flavor, I was able to get the calories down to 193 per serving by eliminating the frosting completely, substituting 1/3 cup of applesauce and 1/3 cup of oil for the oil called for, raisins for the walnut, reducing the sugar to 3/4 cup and cutting it into 12 servings. wonderful! - 9/18/10
