I made this very easy cake, not just once but twice....The first cake I made 1/2 a recipe and it was great... My hubsand loved it and so did I... I also froze some for later use and it tasted just as good.... I also use stevia instead of regular sugar and cut out the calories.... This will be one of our favorite to make when we have butternut squash..

The cake was easy to make. However, I made two; both did not raise in the middle as it did on the sides and took longer to bake. I plan to fill with an apple fruit filling and, perhaps, top with either ice cream or whipped cream.
