      This was excellant cake. The directions don't indicate it but be sure to squeeze as much moisture as possible out of the squash before adding to the mix. Instead of frosting I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on the cooled cake. DH was in chocolate heaven.

      This is by far the very best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. I cannot wait to make it for the "chocoholics" in my family. Plus it helped to use up squash from my garden.
