Butternut Snack Cake (SCD, GFCF)

I had some butternut squash leftover and was in the mood for a nice moist snack cake. I adapted this from Almond Butter Pumpkin Brownies at This Primal Life. I added and extra egg and some spices and voila, a nice little cake. I've made her pumpkin brownie recipe before as well and it was delicious.

Butternut Snack Cake

1 cup Almond Butter, room temp
3/4 cup Butternut Squash, baked and pureed
2 Eggs
1/3 cup Honey
1 teas. Baking Soda
1 teas. Cinnamon
1/8 teas. Allspice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and 8" x 8" cake pan.

In a large mixing bowl, mix almond butter until smooth. Blend in other ingredients one at a time. Pour into pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until cake tests done with a toothpick.

  1. I can smell it cooking! Thanks for another winner!

  2. Yum! I love that there's butternut squash in this cake -- my new hobby is hiding veggies in food so my boys will eat them :) Would you be interested in linking this recipe to my new blog carnival, "Allergy-Friendly Lunchbox Love?" You can find it at Hope you can join us! ~ Lisa

  3. Thanks for coming to the party :) Can't wait to try these! (P.S. I love your story about how you came to be called Mrs. Ed!)


  4. This sounds lovely! I may try making it with courgettes since butternut squash is quite expensive here!

  5. What an awesome selection of recipes you have! This cake looks particularly scrummy :) and I plan to check out more of your great recipes. Thanks!

  6. Baking soda is not on the Gaps diet?
