How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350º
  • Prep 2 medium loaf pans (my new ones are 8.5" x 4.5", teflon, but the first time, I covered a big casserole with buttered wax paper)
  • Mix together squash mash, brown sugar, butter, and eggs
  • Sift together flour and baking soda
  • Add 3/4 of the flour mixture to the squash mixture and mix, adding more flour as necessary until the batter is firm
  • Pour batter into pans, spreading evenly
  • Place in oven until well browned and a skewer inserted into the bread comes out clean
  • Remove from over, let cool for 10 mins, then turn out of pans to continue cooling on rack
  • Thanks to Bernard Clayton's Bread Book for the inspiration for this recipe

    Yep, definitely bake the squash. I halve mine length-wise, season however you like (I like salt, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon), rub lightly but evenly with oil, then bake for about 1 hour in a 450ºF oven or until nice and soft. Then cool, scoop and mash.

    i'm assuming i should cook the squash to make the mash? About how long does it take to bake?

    Looks delicious!!!
