Made this cake the other day, it was very nice! good alternative to a unhealthy cake as it has a sweentess factor! Grating butternut squash is a pain though!
Also a good boost ahead of exercise! aswel as after!
vellooo it does not matter about the calories, its where they come from , which in this case, its all natural, which can only be good for you!
HealthyRunner hi, the calories don't bother me personally (I did make the cake afterall) but consuming more calories than you use will lead to weight gain no matter how 'good' they are. The way I read the article it seemed to say that because there was no butter in the cake it was 'guilt free' which could be interpreted as having fewer calories. It might have fewer calories per 100 grams than traditional cake - I don't know because that information wasn't given.
Enjoy the cake.
Fair point vellooo, thats very true! i wasnt trying start an argument by the way. its just a cake after all lol!
I suspect the most of the calories come from almonds and the honey!
Out of intrest how did you work out the calorie content?
Made the cake 2day, it was very nice! good alternative to a unhealthy cake as it has a sweentess factor and no butter! I used a food proccsser to grate the butternut squash.
I also used one less egg and less almonds and added wholemeal instead - which i believe will reduce the calorie content. It also added a bit more bulk to the cake which is nice. Make a fill slightly fuller.
I will be making the cake again.
Part cook the squash to male it slightly softer and then easier to grate. BUT be carefull to not cook to much
