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.
Here's a look back at week 1's and week 2's cakes, and be sure to check back in next week: It's the last week of the cake parade (sniff), and boy is it a good one.

A chocolate cake with (delicious, vegetal) secrets, from Better Baking.
Certainly not your basic tea loaf.
