cake of butternut october0609_1 While flipping through a pumpkin and squash cookbook (thank you, Tammie) I found a recipe for a cake made of butternut, much like how you would use carrot. Only a butternut is hard like a rock and slippery to cut open and grate, after a google search, viewing a video, setting myself up on the floor of my kitchen with a knife, peeler and cutting board, I think I've earned an uncooked-butternut-cut-open-peel-and-grate badge.

I love these crop circles. So beautiful!

We should make a trade sometime. I sample your autumn creations, you sample mine.

That sounds like a lot of work to do for a cake, I hope it's as yummy as it looks.

Squash is hard to work with! You do deserve a merit badge :)

I found a fun recipe for white squash pudding on the internet some time back when I decided to make my sister a recipe box (complete with actual recipe cards containing recipes) as a wedding gift...

Figuring out which squash that was, and the actually finding one — that was a challenge.

Funny! I have the same problem with sweet potatoes. I always get to craving some fries, but then I think about how hard they are to slice up. The cake looks great!
