READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by cookn4mytwins

A very good year in my garden for butternut squash. I've been looking for ways to use them up. I altered a sweet potato recipe and this came out delicious.

I used this recipe because I made way too much butternut squash baby food (basically watered down baked squash). I was worried about the squash being too thin (having too much water) but the cake came out perfectly. Great flavor! I will definitely use this recipe again.
