Cushaw Bread

Beverly Dunlap


Cushaw bread is a different version of Pumpkin Bread I developed it as a Girl Scout Leader. We took our scout troop out every fall and visited the pumpkin fields, there was always a variety of squash. To demonstrate the many uses for squash, the girl scouts made pumpkin bread and I developed my recipe for cushaw bread using cushaw, Butternut and Acorn squash. It is delicious, Hope you enjoy it.
