Isn’t that a fun word?
If you don’t know what a kushaw is…


    …it is a winter squash.

Similar to a pumpkin in flavor, but milder. And it makes a great cake!!


While this was probably one of the least photogenic bundts EVER it is quite tasty.
AND it was baked in the SLOW COOKER!! Which is what caught my eye when I saw the original recipe – Old Fashioned Pumpkin Cake in a old cookbook.

Slow Cooker Kushaw Bundt Cake

    1/2 cup veggie oil
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups sugar {I used bulk Stevia with an extra shot of plain Stevia}
    1 cup pureed KUSHAW
    1/2 cup water
    1 1/2 cups AP flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp cinnamon {I used a full tsp}
    1/2 tsp ground cloves
    1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
    1/8 tsp salt
    1 cup chopped pecans.

In a large bowl, mix together the oil, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and water.
Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Blend well. Stir in the pecans. Turn into a buttered bundt pan.
Carefully place the bundt pan in a 5-quart electric slow cooker.
Cover and cook on the high heat setting about 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 hours, or until a cake tester inserted in center of the cake comes out clean. {Mine took 3 hours} (Do not attempt to cook on the low heat setting for a longer time.)
Remove the lid and turn the cooker off. Leave the cake in the cooker until the dish is cool enough to handle. Remove from the cooker. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature. Instead of the recommended whipped cream or powdered sugar I topped it with a

Honey Cinnamon Drizzle

    1/2 cup butter
    1 tsp cinnamon
    2 Tbl brown sugar
    1/4 cup honey

Mix the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce begins to thicken.Allow to cool before drizzling on the cake And try NOT to eat it with a spoon!!!
