Very similar to pumpkin bread, but a different twist!

Step-By-Step

1Grease 2 loaf pans. Preheat oven to 350.
2In a large bowl, beat together sugar and oil. Add eggs and beat well.
3In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add flour mixture and water alternately to the sugar mixture, beating on low speed after each addition until just combined.
4Beat in mashed squash.
*Any winter squash will work -- acorn, butternut squash, buttercup squash, hubbard squash, or calabaza. You can even use a 15 oz can of pumpkin, if desired.
5Spoon batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.
