Sweet Butternut Squash Muffins

Recipe by  

"A little sweeter, a little fluffier, a little tastier than the original, but with more fat and calories. Makes a beautifully bright-colored muffin perfect for the fall table. An excellent way to use the squash."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners and prepare the liners with cooking spray.
  2. Put squash into a roasting pan with cut sides down. Pour enough water into pan to fill 1/2-inch deep.
  3. Roast squash in preheated oven until flesh is easily pierced through with a fork, about 45 minutes. Remove roasting pan and reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Scoop hot squash into a large bowl and mash until no large chunks remain. Stir sugar and butter into the squash.
  5. Whisk flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt together in a bowl.
  6. Beat eggs, milk, sour cream, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Stirring constantly, add a spoonful of squash mixture into the egg mixture to temper it before adding egg mixture to the squash mixture; stir.
  7. Fold flour mixture into the squash mixture until just incorporated; spoon into muffin tins. Top each with a pecan half.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes.

Butternut Squash comes in different sizes so it makes this recipe a little difficult to review. I ended up using 2 cups of cooked squash that was freshly picked from the garden. As with the previous reviewer, my baking time was substantially more than mentioned in the recipe. This could be because I used a larger squash, or my squash had more moisture because it was freshly picked. In any case, the muffins were moist and had good flavor. I wouldn’t add a pecan half on the top next time but perhaps just add some chopped pecans.

I baked muffins for over an hour and they didnt cook, the inside was raw. I let them in the oven on 350f until burned. Didnt rise. Tasted the top and was good flavor.

It took me a little longer than 75 minutes. If you're going to make this, plan on it taking closer to 90 minutes.
