This cake was really good, very moist and pretty chocolatey. Good way to use up summer squash! (used a combination of zucchs, festival, etc) The squash made it moist but were not at all noticeable in the final cake. A couple tips, some mentioned by previous reviewers - 1. Be sure to ring out the squash after grating. I put mine in a strainer and pressed out the excess water. 2. Dont overcook it. Cook it just until a toothpick comes out mostly dry. For me in a 9x13 pan, took 40 minutes and was perfect. 3. It is not very sweet. I paired it with a simple chocolate buttercream frosting - 1 stick butter, 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder and 1/3 cup cream. With the frosting, it got a "Wow!" from my 7 yr old nephew and a group of 3-7 year old boys eagerly gobbled it down! Would not have been sweet enough on it's own for kids.
