"This is a good way to use butternut squash. It has the aroma and flavors of a pumpkin bread. A great bread for Thanksgiving time."

2 2/3 cups
pureed cooked butternut squash
3 1/3 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
This yields a lot of batter, so I opted to make some muffins in addition to a loaf. For those not knowing how to achieve a cooked butternut squash, just cut in half lengthwise, brush the insides with olive oil and place the flesh side down on a foil lined cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-45 min depending on the size until they are fork tender. Then just scoop out the meat into a bowl and use a potato masher or hand mixer to puree. The texture is just right whether you make quick bread loaves or muffins. Not too dry or crumbly when you bite in. The ratio of spices was perfect in my opinion. I ended up icing some which hubs enjoyed. A nice alternative to canned pumpkin.
This is a perfect use of butternut squash from the garden. I used twice the amount of cinnamon but half the amount of ground cloves because I thought the cloves would be too aggressive for our personal tastes. It came out perfectly. The flavor and texture are wonderful.
Even my kids loved these! I replaced the shortening with 1/3 c. applesauce and 1/3 c. canola oil. This recipe made 24 nice muffins so I did the first dozen without nuts and the second with 1/3 c. chopped walnuts. They took 30 minutes in the oven at the same temperature. Yum!
Thanks! This is one of the best quick bread recipes I've found on here. The only change I made was to use splenda instead of sugar. It rose well and cooked evenly on the inside and the outside.
Love this recipe! Great way to use butternut from the garden!
Great recipe -- easy to make, and quite delicious! I substituted 2/3 cup shortening for 1 cup butter, and added twice as much cinnamon. It came out perfect.
I think this is a very good base for the recipe.. but cannot give it 5 stars as I would make changes.
First: for information, I made 6 mini loaf pans, with about 1 1/2 cups batter in each, 350 degrees for 35 minutes ( convection) and they came out well.
I do not have shortening so followed some of the other reviewers and used 1/3 cup applesauce and 1/3 cup canola oil. Doubled the cinnamon. Otherwise I followed the directions as written.
I think the extra cinnamon is needed, as these were mild even with the change. I might even add some nutmeg next time. But I also think they were a bit too sweet, so I would try 2 cups of sugar next time. And also I will probably add some nuts, perhaps pecans.
Also, I had 4 small squash, and they were just over 2 cups pureed... so perhaps 2 large ones?
I followed the recipe exactly with exception of leaving out cloves and adding a tsp. of ground Nutmeg. It was moist and tender with a great taste and pleasing "spicy" smell.
