Spicy Squash Bread

Having had a piece of butternut squash teasing me from afar in the vegetable stash, thought I'd give it a joy ride and experiment on this dense, moist, spicy bread.

1 2/3 cup wholewheat flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
80g butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 teaspoons (or more, depending on your taste) garam masala
1 small butternut squash, roasted and deseeded, and mashed (around 1 1/2 cups)
2 eggs
salt, to taste
mustard seeds, for garnish.

Grease 2 small loaf tins and pre-heat oven to 180C.

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. (i find that a wooden spoon is best for this, if your hand mixer is broken!)

Mix eggs, until well incorporated.

Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, garam masala, nutmeg and squash. Add sufficient milk until mixture is wet and well combined. Taste and add salt and garam masala according to your taste.

Transfer to the loaf tins, sprinkle with mustard seeds, and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean.

Serve hot, or let the flavors deepen and serve the next day!

Best with tea!


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
