Pumpkin & Coconut Cake

The jury's out on this one. It's a really moist cake, all in one recipe so easy to make but can't decide if I really like it or not! The recipe comes from weekend supplement so not sure of it's origins. It's sweet and unusual and so different to any other cake I've tried. I'm thinking it would probably work well baked in individual muffin tins.

The recipe

350g butternut squash flesh, grated (put in food processor on grater setting if have one as much easier)
120g desiccated coconut
200g self-raising flour
150g demerara sugar
4 eggs, beaten
butter for greasing

Preheat oven to 180c.
Grease a loaf tin and line with baking parchment.

Basically just combine all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix well.
Spoon into prepared tin and bake for about 1 hour.
Cool a little in a tin and then on a wire rack.
