Success - request sent close

½ cup vegetable oil

¼ cup water

1 cup granulated sugar

½ cup light brown sugar

1¾ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon allspice

Honey butter (recipe follows), if desired for serving

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil and flour a 9-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine purée, eggs, water and both sugars with an electric mixer. Mix on medium speed until well combined.

Add flour, baking soda, salt and spices and mix on low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the center of the preheated oven 1 hour, or until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove bread from pan and cool on a wire rack until ready to serve. Slice and serve warm with honey butter, if desired.

Serves 12.

Cook's note: For testing purposes, I used canned Farmers market Organic Butternut Squash Purée. Look for a brand that is pure squash with no additional spices, or roast your own butternut squash and purée. Check out for recipe.
