Butternet Squash Bread

barbara lentz


I like to make the puree with the butter and milk. You don't have to but the bread just comes out so moist. Be sure to grease the pans well it has a tendency to stick. I use Crisco and not spray because it gives it a nice golden crust and the spray seems to stick.
