Here’s a delicious fall recipe that I plan on baking this week!

Butternut Cake
Serves: 10-12

This is similar to a carrot cake, and is wonderfully moist. The glaze on top makes it a perfect afternoon treat with a freshly steeped cup of tea. Roasted pumpkin or carrots may be substituted for the butternut.

⅓ cup vegetable oil
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1½ cups roasted butternut (master recipe), mashed
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup dried cranberries or raisins and chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F). Grease a springform cake pan.

Beat the oil, sugar and eggs together in a mixing bowl. Add the mashed butternut to the mixture.

Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt together. Add this to the squash mixture.

Fold in the dried cranberries and chopped nuts, being careful not to overmix. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake in the centre of the oven for 40–50 minutes.

Lemon Glaze
⅓ cup lemon juice
⅓ cup icing sugar
¼ cup honey

Place all the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar has dissolved.

When the cake is baked, remove it from the oven. Using a wooden skewer, poke holes all over the top of the cake and pour the hot glaze over the holes. Leave the cake in the pan for at least 30 minutes.

Serve with some freshly whipped cinnamon cream. To make cinnamon cream, add 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to every cup of whipping cream and whip into soft peaks.
