Acorn Squash Cake

3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups packed squash (you can use pumpkin, acorn, butter nut squash)
1 cup oil
3 cups sugar
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degree.  Mix dry ingrediants together, mix wet ingrediants together, then mix everything together. I use several small pans, or a bundt cake or really whatever kind of cake you want to make.  The cooking time varies depending on what kind of pan you use.  I always start with 25 minutes and go from there.  Your cake could take up to 50 minutes. This is a heavy cake, but very good and usually very moist. 

I use an orange or maple glaze for the topping.  Or you can just dust it with powdered sugar.

Have fun!  Comment if you have questions or you can contact me through facebook, Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast.
