Squash cake a la Søndag

It is time for squash, which be used for both cooking as well as baking. I have tested this recipe on squash cake in the weekly magazine "Søndag". I decided to supplement the spices with a little nutmeg. And instead of dark chocolate I used milk chocolate, as I dislike dark chocolate. So use the chocolate, which you personally prefer.

I also decided not to make the frosting of cream cheese and sour cream. 

I really like the spices part of the recipe, but I prefer the texture of this squash cake. Therefore I think, I will combine these recipes into one cake next time, when I bake squash cake.

As other suggestion for helping out on a surplus of squashes, when take a look at these baking recipes in form of
