Recipe by Wendy0

Based on a recipe from Good Housekeeping. This version documents my substitutions because I was missing 2 of the eggs called for, and changed the pan size. For the squash, I used frozen cubes of long-neck pumpkin thawed and pureed--which saved having to pre-cook it. I also topped the cake with my version of cream cheese icing, but it is wonderful with none.
