Orange Glaze: Stir together til smooth. Note: Avoid using dry old dates. For slightly softer cake texture, add 2 Tbsp melted butter to batter before folding into squash. This will add 2 grams fat per serving. From: The Spectator....Aug 12/92 There is yellow squash hidden in this cake, but you'd never guess it. It's delicate, faintly sweet flavor blends right in. You can use crook neck, straight neck or even yellow zucchini, but be sure to select young squach with soft, thin skins. (why not green zucchini?) This cake, with its accent of chopped dates, needs only a simple icing to dress it up To add extra moistness and a sweet citrus flavour, poke all over the warm cake and pour optional glaze over the cake til it soaks in. Adapted from a rich recipe with sour cream and pecans created by the late Bert Greene.
