Hello October! Or as I like to call it, "pumpkin-spice and everything nice" month! It's time to bring those incredible yellow, red and orange hues from outside into your home. And what better way to do that than with moist and flavourful butternut squash "pumpkin" bread.
I call this butternut squash "pumpkin" bread because just as the name suggests, it is made with butternut squash puree. I like to make my own homemade puree and I find butternut squash so much easier to work with than a big, heavy pumpkin. Plus, it is so incredibly flavourful. In fact, you can pretty much substitute pumpkin in any recipe with butternut squash. However, if you are crunched for time or cannot get your hands on butternut squash puree, do not worry. You can easily substitute it with pumpkin puree to create classic pumpkin bread.
The big bonus of baking this "pumpkin" bread is the incredible aroma that fills my kitchen, which comes from the delicious fall flavours of the pumpkin spice blend. Yes, I am talking cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Yum! Seriously, what are you waiting for? Join in on the pumpkin spice season with this butternut squash "pumpkin" bread.
