Looking for a simple and easy butternut squash recipe? Make your over abundance of squash into a delicious bread recipe!
First off, I give no credit to myself for this recipe. In a casual conversation with my sitter and good friend she happened to mention that she fed my youngest squash bread at lunch.
My ears perked up and I asked her to repeat.
She said the word again. Squash bread.
I really didn't have high hopes for a bread made with squash. I had pictures of eating a yeast flavored, dense as a brick bread with a squash aftertaste. I geared up for the gulp and smile. What would I say? "It's....greeeeat." No, that's not it. On the way to the kitchen I kept practicing what I would say about it. Unique? Interesting?
She took it out and gave me a bite. I was shocked. It was delicious, and not at all what I had made it out to be in my head. It was so delicious that we made our own loaf when I got home and had it as a cheesy flatbread and served it for lunch.
Bring on the flavors of fall with this delicious bread. Try to keep people guessing what secret ingredient is inside. My kids couldn't guess. Oh, and the best part? This recipe is totally adaptable. I've added pumpkin to give it a beautiful orange look at Halloween, or you can add butternut, acorn or any other kind of squash!
