Butternut Squash Bread

The texture is similar to a banana bread. Soft, but not soggy.

Halved from Here

I’ll be honest I really, really don’t like soft bread. I spent a long time stuck eating squishy flax bread when I had nothing else and once I had a chance to break away I never looked back. So I’m biased against this bread, but it’s not that bad. It’s soft, but not gooey. It’s a free from kitchen sink job and tweaking it too much would probably trash it. I’ve had better, but something that uses all the flours that usually combine with things I don’t/can’t eat and leaves them to themselves is okay by me.

It’s slightly crunchy outside and soft inside.

Whether it’s all it’s claimed to be health-wise is hard to say, but with all that’s in it and all that’s left out you could do a lot worse. If you’d rather a firmer loaf with a similar taste try my Pumpkin Spiced Buckwheat Bread. That’s it for me….just kidding, tomorrow, after a three year break, it’s Cheesecake in Buckwheat Pastry time!
