This recipe was submitted to the 1946 cookbook " Foods that made New England Famous" by Mrs. Herman E. Gould, E. Providence, R.I. and she wrote:
"The rule for squash muffins was given to me by an old lady who was born in the Oxford Hills of Maine. Her old homestead was on top of a mountain. This house would be buried and she can recall her father driving the ox up onto the roof of the house to clear off some of the snow. It was during winters like these that the squash muffins were eaten with jam for dessert. The squash was grown on their farm as was all their food except flour and sugar.
