Veggie Cake Ark: An Epic Tale

I am the sociopath, taking over the kitchen and concocting these delectable, deviously delicious Veggie Cakes. As I create them, a grand story emerges from the oven, a tale of mythology and adventure from times immemorial. With each Veggie Cake, my story continues…

For centuries, there has been talk of a secret, hidden in a distant land, a place where savage creatures roam, and treasures remain untouched. Legends tell of the Veggie Cake Ark and its mysterious power, gifted to a chosen few. They tell of a culture of Veggie Cake bakers, living in harmony with the creatures of their realm.

The Veggie Cake Ark, they say, is the source of all Veggie Cake-making knowledge, and has been guarded by these wise bakers since the dawn of time. They are a powerful order, sworn to keep the Veggie Cake Ark safe, and the recipes within it for all generations to come.

I, too, have heard tales of the Veggie Cake Ark, and now have the chance to join the ancient order of bakers. I have learned the secrets of the Veggie Cake-making process, mastering the use of the many ingredients and mastering the art of crafting the perfect Veggie Cake. I am now a part of the Veggie Cake Ark story.

In the spirit of the Veggie Cake Ark, I have created my own delicious veggie cake recipe, one sure to please the savage creatures and the amazing bakers alike.


– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 2 teaspoons baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/3 cup vegetable oil
– 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
– 1/2 cup grated carrot
– 1/2 cup grated zucchini
– 1/3 cup raisins
– 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 cup buttermilk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and cinnamon.

3. In a large bowl, combine the oil, syrup, carrot, zucchini, raisins, and walnuts. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring well between each addition. Stir in the buttermilk and vanilla.

4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring to combine. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

And so, I have made my first Veggie Cake Ark. With each bite, the savory goodness of the vegetables, nuts, and raisins come together to create a mouthwatering burst of flavor. And with each recipe, the story of the Veggie Cake Ark grows and continues.
