Squash Bread (Pumpkin, Butternut, or any other winter squash)
1 c. butternut squash puree
1/2 c. fat (I used a mixture of melted butter and olive oil, it called for straight vegetable oil)
1/4 c. vanilla soy milk (original recipe calls for water...BORING!)
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 3/4-2 c. unbleached AP flour (doesn't have to be unbleached, but hey, it's better unbleached!)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. dark chocolate cocoa powder
PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 degrees
1. Mix together squash puree, eggs, fat, soy milk, and sugars.

Pairs Well With
Always loved a good pumpkin bread, but we wanted to try it with other squash since we make squash puree and freeze it for use in all kinds of things.
I added somethings to the recipe I found specifically for butternut squash bread, and we will see how it goes...it is in the oven now!
