Totally got the kids with this one! Even sitting at the table up close they couldn't tell and when we cut it they thought it was a spice/carrot cake. Everyone thought it was great, except my 7 year old...she's still not speaking to me.
Firstly this meatloaf is very tasty! My 8 year old nephew was tricked by this cake! He gave up sweets for Lent and was quite mad at me when I told him that I accidentally made cake for dinner. We all had a good laugh after saying "April Fool's"; he even cleaned his plate! I reduced the garlic to 1/2 a clove, the onions to 1/4 cup grated, and a couple dashes of Worchestershire sauce because of dietary restrictions, and the taste was still excellent. I also subbed 4 slices of crustless white bread soaked in the milk for the breadcrumbs. I will use this recipe for regular meatloaf, too. Thanks!
Too much fun!! Totally fooled my family and it's good meatloaf, too!!
