Brown Butter Spiced Winter Squash Bread

Oh boy. This was a good one. I think I easily polished off the whole loaf by day two.
The spices! The texture! Oh my I do adore this cakey bread.

The recipe comes from none other than my current favourite Ms. Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks. I followed the recipe pretty much completely as is, except I used walnut oil instead of hazelnut, and I made my own garam masala-esque blend of spices (coriander, cumin, ginger, black pepper, bay leaf, cardamom, and clove).
One bizarre thing I did do though was NOT measure my squash. Yup, that's right, I chopped, roasted, and pureed it but somewhere in my zombie mom brain I didn't think about measuring the damn stuff. Oh well, turns out lady luck was on my side and this turned out great. Now the only thing is I wonder how it'll turn out the next time...

  1. Hi! I'm a new follower! I love the concept of make something every day. I used to make things- paintings, jewelry, baked goods.... but now that I have a 6 month old, I just...don't. I'm starting to get back into it. Starting to write, I have some ideas for paintings, starting to cook a little again. Your blog is great inspiration to try to make SOMETHING each day!! This bread might be the next thing I make! It looks awesome! Shared it on my facebook page =)

  2. I hear ya! My son is also 6 months old and that combined with the fact that I seem to have misplaced my camera....means I haven't been updating the blog much. Gotta remedy that someday. Glad you're feeling inspired! :)
