Winter Squash Bread

Amy Herald


This makes some of the best tasting sweet bread I've ever had. I got the original recipe for pumpkin bread from an old Southern Living annual cookbook, but I've discovered over the years that you can use any winter squash you want, I've done this bread with pumpkin, acorn squash and butternut squash. The bread pictured is made with acorn squash.
