Butternut Squash cake (Secret Recipe Club)








Is this time again of Secret Recipe Club and my assignment was Margarett from Tea and Scones and really she has amazing recipes! Was difficult what choose:)
Finally I love this Butternut Squash cake Finally I made two loaves a mini and other more big but the recipe is thinking to make some little loaves.
BTW I think is a nice reecipe for Christmas by the lovely spices.

  13. Gloria, Great looking and sounding cake! Of course, I'd heard of pumpkin cake but I'd never considered using butternut squash in a cake. They're more readily available after Thanksgiving here in the US so this recipe could come in handy. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  29. Hi Gloria!
    I just happen to have someleftover steamed butternut squash and apples leftover from dinner last night. If it wasn't so late, I would start making this cake right now. Thank goodness tomorrow is another day. With a few adjustments for my new diet, I do believe this cake will make both me and Marion happy, lol...

    Thank you so much for sharing, Gloria...
