Nor's Chunky Apple Butternut Squash bread

Nor Mac


I had a recipe handed down from an Aunt. It was originally just Butternut Squash bread. I removed most of the oil in it. I added spice, apples and applesauce, and it is delicious. I basically made this in to a whole new recipe. It is better than the original. I think you will be pleasantly surprised how good it is. Yummy cinnamon Spice,and Apples are a wonderful addition to this bread. Enjoy!!
