Dreamy Butternut Cake

Not that I’m a super planner, but I kind of am. And I’m also the girl that is going to make sure that there’s always more than enough on the table, rather than barely or not enough.  You never know what the day may bring, and who you may be including in your holiday meal last minute.  So, with that said, I cover the holiday bases with plenty to eat.  But what if you make so much Butternut Squash for Thanksgiving that you have all sorts of left overs?

Well just use those left overs to make a Dreamy Butternut Cake of course! Light and airy, it feels like there couldn’t be a single calorie in a slice of this lovely, fluffy, warm spice cake! And let’s face it, squash is good for you!  To top things off, I add a mega-dose of immune building essential oils to make this cake dreamy, AND healthy, no matter how you look at it. A great dessert for after turkey day, or any day.  Gobble! Gobble!

  • 1 Angel Food Cake mix*
  • 1 C cooked (and cooled) mashed butternut squash
  • 5 drops doTerra Cinnamon Bark Oil
  • 5 drops doTerra Clove Oil
  • 6 drops doTerra OnGuard Oil
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream

  1. In a large glass bowl, follow package directions for preparing the cake
  2. Gently fold in the squash and carefully blend together
  3. Gently stir in all of the oils
  4. Pour evenly into 2 loaf pans
  5. Bake 30 -40 minutes or until a toothpick pierced through the center comes out clean.
  6. Pour the whipped cream into a glass bowl and whip to stiff peaks with a hand mixer
  7. Remove cakes from the oven and allow to cool. When completely cooled, remove from the pans, arrange on a plate, and cover tops with whipped cream
  8. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  9. Absolutely dreamy!
  10. Makes two loafs….one for now, one for later!

*the KID in me can’t help but get the confetti cake mix….no judging….
