Completely by coincidence (what does this say about us?), this week in the Fall Cookbook Cake Parade—where we post a new cake from a new fall cookbook every day—included cakes with carrot, sweet potato, zucchini, beans, and pumpkin. And they were all better for it.
Monday: Carrot-Ginger Black Sesame Loaf
"Loaf" might sound humble, until you see the Halloween-ready one in Everything I Want to Eat by Sqirl's Jessica Koslow.
Tuesday: Chocolate Chicory Cake
Wednesday: Pumpkin Cakes (Nan Gua Bing)
These red bean-filled, deep-fried, crispy-gooey pumpkin cakes from Land of Fish and Rice by Fuchsia Dunlop have nothing to do with Halloween.
Thursday: School-Party Sheet Cake
A chocolate cake with (delicious, vegetal) secrets, from Better Baking.
Friday: Brown Butter Honey Tea Cake
Certainly not your basic tea loaf.
