Kabocha, Olive Oil, and Chocolate Cake

Kabocha is a popular squash that may be found at certain organic markets. Few people would think that it could go into a chocolate cake. But the squash could be the perfect addition to a creative and organic chocolate cake. Include olive oil and spices to mix together a delicious cake batter. The chocolate cake bakes easily and will come out hot for guests. Remember to top with a delicious icing and add some nut mix.
