Butternut Squash Walnut Bread Recipe

Butternut Squash Walnut Bread

3 1/2 cups flour
4 eggs, beaten lightly
3 cups sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
16 oz pumpkin puree (not pie filling) *I used 1 whole acorn squash, halved and baked with butter and brown sugar.
1 cup oil
1 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two (9x5inch) loaf pans or three (8×4 inch) loaf pans. (Flour bottom of loaf pan if using baked squash with brown sugar, it tends to caramelize on the bottom and will stick.)

Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a large bowl; set aside.

Mix pumpkin (squash), oil,  eggs, and 2/3 cup water together and stir in dry ingredients. Add 1 cup chocolate chips if desired.  Divide batter in pans equally.

Bake 60-70 minutes (if using squash, cover loaves with foil and bake another 20 minutes) or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans and cool on racks.

Bon Apetite!
