Quick Spelt Butternut Squash Cake

Autumn, alternative to Carrot Cake, Wholegrain Spelt, Easy, Quick

Finding myself with a spare hunk of Butternut Squash the other day my husband suggested I make a cake with it. Hence I set about creating this super quick and super tasty cake which is equally good served as a dessert. To find the recipe head over to Great British Chefs and you’ll see how ridiculously easy it is to make!

    I love ‘hiding’ fruit and veg in my cakes. Not tried one with butternut squash. Yet.

    I made this cake yesterday for the second time with my kids help! It turned out much better than I thought and we enjoyed a slice with a nice warm cup of tea after watching the Rememberance parade through our town centre. It was really cold out so we looked forward to our cake when we got home!

    Spelt is much underused in my opinion.

  13. Irene Wright

    looks lovely – good enough to eat all by myself. Will definitely try this one out. Never baked with spelt before but there’s always a first time for everything.

    I’ve been seeing a lot of spelt breads and cake lately, and have been thinking about it a lot. How does it bake? I’ve never used it before. Any tips?

    1. Camilla

      I’ve just found it behaves in the same way aw wheat flour so no special attention needed:-)

  15. Ursula Hunt

    Good to see more recipes using spelt

  16. Maya Russell

    It looks lovely. I’ve never made a cake with spelt flour, only bread.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, it’s is very versatile:-)

    Looks lovely. Could you add some chopped nuts as well or would it not go? That orange frosting looks fab! I would so lick the bowl! 😉 xoxo

    1. Camilla

      Oh that would be good, if I’d have had Walnuts I would have put those in too:-)
