Squash Snack Cake

Squash Snack Cake

Adding squash to a recipe can make a moist and delicious baked good. We love this recipe, courtesy of Chef Christina Ng, (@chinitaspies) that is centered on your favorite summer squash variety and makes the most of produce you may find from your local CSA (community supported agriculture), farmer's market or grocery store. This is a great recipe to keep on hand, especially to pack in some extra veggies and use up any squash that may be past its prime.
