They taste just like chocolate cupcakes! Like good chocolate cupcakes, even! They're super-chocolatey and almost obscenely moist -- like the cake mix with the pudding in it, in a good way. Plus, it's a great way to use up a glut of squash -- and the green flecked against the rich, reddish brown of the cake frankly delights me. This recipe is kind of a cross between a Heidi Swanson cupcake recipe and a Bon Appetit cake recipe, with a few deviations, as is my way. Feel free to omit the spices, although I love the flavor combination -- just don't cut back on the vanilla or the salt, which the cake really needs in its successful fight against blandness.
