    hollyberry's Note:

    These are the fluffiest most delicious cake-like muffins! It's so rewarding to start with raw squash and end up with such a sumptuous treat. My children absolutely devour these - a batch will disappear in a day. A must try!

    1. 1
      Turn oven on to 400 degrees F. Cut a butternut squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Place cut side down on parchment paper over a cookie sheet and roast for 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle, scoop the squash away from the peel. Mash. Use 2 1/2 cups. This time is not included in the prep time.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Using a stand mixer, blend thoroughly the squash, shortening, margarine, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla.
    3. 3
      Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir just until blended. Remove bowl from mixer and fold in the chocolate chips (if desired).
    4. 4
      Line 24 muffin cups. Scoop the batter into the cups.
    5. 5
      Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.

      I ended up making this recipe in two loaf pans since I did not have any muffin pans. At first glance it looked like it was going to be quite dry but it ended up being quite good. I did not put any chocolate chips in. I found that it was quite sweet almost like cake. The next time I make it I will probably modify it to see if I can make it less sweet. Otherwise I really enjoyed it.
