“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.”

Ingredients

  • 2 2/3 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2 cups pureed cooked butternut squash
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 2/3 cup raisins (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9×5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Beat sugar and shortening together in a bowl until fluffy. Stir butternut squash, eggs, and water into sugar mixture.
  3. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cloves in another bowl; stir into sugar mixture. Add nuts and raisins; stir until batter is just blended. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 15 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
