This simple to make snack cake makes me think a lot of a pound cake, but without all the sugar. The yellow squash makes this cake nice and moist and the combination of almond flour and the THM Baking Blend gives it the perfect texture. This cake is delicious even without icing. My favorite way to serve it is plain or with a berry sauce.
While summer squash is in season, I like to freeze it in 2 cup portions so that I can easily make baked goods throughout the year using squash. Most of the time we think of using zucchini in cakes, but yellow squash works just as well, especially if you’re wanting a lighter color of cake.
It’s simple to freeze summer squash.
- Peel or leave peeling, the choice is yours. There are more nutrients in the peeling, but if you don’t want the extra yellow or green color you can peel them first.
- Cut out seedy centers.
- Shred. This is easiest done in a food processor. This food processor is the one that I use.
- Freeze in 2-cup portions in freezer bags.
- To use, thaw on counter or place in a bowl of water for a few hours thaw. Drain excess water off before using in recipe.
