One of the nice things about keeping a blog is the people who drop by and share their thoughts and views. When I wrote about my squash harvest, Shanda left a comment about her Squash Bread and I asked if she would mind sharing her recipe. She very kindly took the time to write it out for me and I couldn’t wait to try it.

Here at Willow House, turkey soup follows turkey dinner as surely as day follows night. Today was soup day, and it offered a perfect opportunity to make squash bread to accompany our soup dinner. It turned out beautifully and was delicious! Thanks again, Shanda! If you would like to try it too, here is Shanda’s recipe.

Shanda’s Squash Bread

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup squash puree
1/2 cup veg oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use either toasted pecans or black walnuts, yum!)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Sift together flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Mix the squash, oil, eggs, water, and spices together, then combine with dry ingredients. Stir in nuts. Pour into well buttered pan (I’m serious, you better well butter it!) Bake 50-60 min or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Turn out after about 20 min to cool on rack.

This is a recipe for one loaf, just double it! If I’m gonna go though the labor for one loaf, I’ll just make it two (share or freeze).
