      very moist and tasty. I made this gluten free (with rice flour, coconut flour and a little potato starch) instead of the wheat flour. Try doubling the baking powder for GF version, as it didn't rise much. <br/><br/>I recommend <br/>1) reducing sugar significantly; it's way too sweet. try with half the sugar in the cake (so use only 1/3 cup) or try substituting with honey (or honey and stevia combo, perhaps). <br/>2) Add more spices (maybe a half tsp. each).<br/>3) For Glaze: definitely reduce sugar. want more of a cream cheese taste than just sweetness; I also added a squeeze of lemon juice b/c it was soooo sweet.<br/><br/>good, so will try it again sometime with the alterations.

      Good cake. I used a mini loaf silicone mold. Made three small loafs, will do2 next time or double the recipe. Used xlitol for the white sugar and cake flour. Crushed pecans and flaxseeds are great in it. Don't need to frost this one.

      I had some squash to use & needed to make a cake for a gathering. I don't make alot of cakes but I was pleased when this one was gushed about by several at the party. One person even thought I bought the cake. I was alittle surprized how dense the cake turned out. I doubled the recipe (cooked in 2 pans) & layered each on top to make one cake. I added abit more cream cheese into the icing & several enjoyed the orange flavour. Thanks for sharing Nana.
