Please don't tell my kids that this recipe contains squash! They LOVE these and eat the heck out of them. So if you have kids, do not make these muffins when they are around.

Trim off squash ends. Cut squash into 1-inch slices. Cook in boiling water for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain well and mash. Measure enough to equal 2 cups. Combine 2 C. mashed squash, eggs, butter or margarine; stir well, set aside. Combine remaining dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Make a well in center. Add squash mixture to dry ingredients stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into greased muffin pans filling 3/4 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

  • These muffins were AMAZING! After they were done cooking I topped them with some honey and they hit the spot!

  • I ended up with double the amount of squash called for, but only half the flour on hand (and even that was borowed!) I added 3 cups freshly ground flour from my wheat berries and even my husband didn't complain! I also ran the squash, which I had NOT peeled, through the food processor, as mashing was getting tiresome and unproductive. The muffins were a huge hit for my fam!

  • Can you make little loaves of bread using this recipe or do you have to make it into muffins? thanks

  • We have added in the amount of butter to use: 3/4 - 1 C. butter or margarine. The recipe also specifies yellow summer squash. We recommend peeling the squash and trimming off the ends. Thank you for your questions. The recipe has now been corrected!

  • The butter is only to taste. I peel the squash completely. If you choose not to peel it, you will have chewey chunks in the muffins.

  • you don't have a measurement for butter, also does it matter whether you peel the squash as weel as trim off the ends?
