Thanksgiving Love Cake or TL Cake

I have been working on this cake and it is in the healthy taste stage.

TL was on adventure in squash and we tried a Red Kuri which is aka Red Maikado of the land of that rising sun. It resembles Boston Marrow as is  bright red orange fruit.
We also tried the white Acorn and it is sort of sour, and not much flavor.

So use rhe kuri in this as we will be planting this next year on our place as we live in Hope of the big donation.

Recipe is:

1 red Kuri squash baked and meat removed

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup cream or milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

Mix squash, sugar, salt, egg, vanilla

Add flour and mix

Add olive oil and milk.

Add spices and mix

Place batter in 8 x 8 pan which has been greased. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 350 degrees until toothpick comes out clean.

Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

The Kuri fascinates me as most orange squash make me want to vomit in being too strong flavored. The Kuri is light and with no strings. Baked with cinnamon and nutmeg in the shell, covered with foil, they can be topped with real whipped cream and make a nice desert as TL dines upon them.

I like acorns as they have little flavor, but this Kuri is superior.

This is a good way to get rid of squash in it does not have a strong squash flavor.
