This Month's Texana Recipe Butternut Squash Bread

Can you smell the fall? 

1 cup butternut squash purée


2 eggs


1/2 cup vegetable oil


1/4 cup water


1 cup white sugar


1/2 cup brown sugar


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour


1 tsp. baking soda


1/2 tsp. salt


1 tsp. cinnamon


1/2 tsp. nutmeg


½ cup chopped pecans

 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 8.5 x 4.5 x 2.5 inch loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the butternut squash puree, eggs, oil, water and sugars until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom.

3. Stir the dry ingredients into the butternut squash mixture. Combine just until incorporated; do not over mix. Pour into the prepared pan.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
