Winter Squash Quick Bread

February 22, 2019

Celebrate your garden’s winter squash bounty by whipping up a loaf of this Winter Squash Quick Bread. Harvested in the fall, winter squashes can keep in a dark, cool place for months. This recipe uses Butternut squash puree, but you can easily substitute Sugar Pumpkin, Acorn, or Carnival squash purees for a delicious bread.

2-3

Halve and seed a small butternut squash. Either microwave on HIGH for 7-8 minutes, or roast in a 350°F oven for about 60 minutes, until fork tender. Let cool slightly, then mash the flesh with a fork or use a blender to puree (discard the skin). Reserve 1 cup for this recipe, and save the rest for another recipe.

3-3

Whisk together the squash puree, eggs, oil, and sugars until very well combined.

4-4

In another bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

5-3

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients all at once. Mix just until combined.

6-3

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.

7-2

Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly on top. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

8-2

Enjoy!
