I pureed 2 butternut squash's and doubled the recipe because of it. I wanted to make a healthy breakfast muffin for my husband who leaves early in the morning. So I did everything according to directions except I baked them in as a muffin for 30 min. They came out perfect, and my husband loves them. Thanks for the recipe Sheila!

Moist, delicious & relatively healthy cake. I reduced sugar to 1.25 cups and it was still plenty sweet without frosting. Thanks for the tips on using fresh squash. I, too, used 3 cups of fresh squash instead of canned.

Delicious! Even after I forgot to add the raisins! Like Tricia Ann I used cooked, mashed butternut squash instead of canned (impossible to find in the UK). I glazed the two cakes this recipe made with melted honey and a dusting of icing sugar (to make up for my missing raisins ;) ). My boyfriend loves this cake!

This is an excellent way to use up squash. I used 3 cups of pureed yellow squash and substituted pecans for the walnuts. Everybody loved it. Even my oldest dd who doesn't normally like squash, raisins or pecans!!

This cake was so delicious. I made a brown sugar icing to go with it and It made it even better. I used chopped almonds as they were the only nuts I had and I used 3 cups of fresh button squash which I needed to use up. Next time I will try butternut. I took this to a friends house for New Year's and everyone who tried it is still raving about it. Thanks for a yummy recipe.

Excellent way to put a squash to use! When using fresh squash, 3 cups pureed in the blender will work instead of the 14 oz can. Pecans can be substituted for walnuts. If you want to put frosting on top, I'd recommend cutting back a little on the sugar, since it's sweet enough as is.

This was a very good cake, I made this cake with my 2 children and 2 neace and nephew.So im sure you can see that the chatter in the kitchen at the time of makeing it was not a good one as most children dont like most vegitables. Well when we sat down to eat it there was new chatter as thay all loved it!!!!! I would like to tell you that we added Cream Chees frosting witch made it even better. We have a garen and grow our veggies fresh so more recipes Please Thank you The Schierman Family
