  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Beat sugar and shortening together in a bowl until fluffy. Stir butternut squash, eggs, and water into sugar mixture.
  3. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cloves in another bowl; stir into sugar mixture. Add nuts and raisins; stir until batter is just blended. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 15 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

This yields a lot of batter, so I opted to make some muffins in addition to a loaf. For those not knowing how to achieve a cooked butternut squash, just cut in half lengthwise, brush the inside...

Disappointed in this recipe's overpowering clove flavour, especially given the quantity. Now I have a lot of clove-cake. Cloves pretty much annihilated any hint of butternut squash. 1 hour wa...

Even my kids loved these! I replaced the shortening with 1/3 c. applesauce and 1/3 c. canola oil. This recipe made 24 nice muffins so I did the first dozen without nuts and the second with 1/3...

This is a perfect use of butternut squash from the garden. I used twice the amount of cinnamon but half the amount of ground cloves because I thought the cloves would be too aggressive for our ...

Thanks! This is one of the best quick bread recipes I've found on here. The only change I made was to use splenda instead of sugar. It rose well and cooked evenly on the inside and the outsid...

Great recipe -- easy to make, and quite delicious! I substituted 2/3 cup shortening for 1 cup butter, and added twice as much cinnamon. It came out perfect.

Iused butter instead of shortening, and I replaced 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of raw honey, adding about 1/4 tsp. of baking soda to complement that. I used 1/3-1/2 as much cloves, as that's wh...

I only changed one (very mild) thing. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins because I find raisins to be... Yucky ;) Also - highly recommend making FRENCH TOAST with this bread in the...

I used chopped pecans and omitted the raisins when I made the recipe. It was a very creative way to use butternut squash. Since it made two loaves, I kept one and gave one away.

Perfect consistency. I used 1/4 cup of butter instead of shortening for a single loaf. Another great recipe from allrecipes.com.
