Squash cake with butter

I located recipe on squash cake by Valdemarsro, which were served at the Royal Afternoon Tea as one of the very last cake elements. At this time our tummies were already full, so my guests from Horsens were taking their part of the cake with them back to Horsens, and later on my work colleagues finished off the remaining part of the cake.

I only made one change to the recipe, as I replaced the dark chocolate with dark milk chocolate, as I DO NOT like dark chocolate, and as it is my cake I am using milk chocolate !!!

I really like the use of different spices, which makes me think about Christmas, so perhaps I should freeze down some grated squash for later Christmas baking in December ?

As other suggestion for squash cake you could also have a look at this recipe: squash cake a la Årstiderne & Preben's squash cake with cinnamon cream cheese topping
