I love a good pumpkin bread, but what I love even more is experimenting with different squashes in my breads. This can certainly be made with pumpkin, or acorn, or other squash. I planted butternut this year and had a bumper squash and I have a pear tree and together they made a beautiful bread! The addition of the pepitas (pumpkin seeds) adds an amazing depth to the bread.
