When life gives you squash…

The Squash Bread samples were a hit at the Atherton Market yesterday!

Thanks to all who bought squash from us to try the recipe at home… and if you didn’t get a copy, or if you become overrun with squash (or zucchini for that matter… ’cause they’re pretty much interchangeable in recipes like these) as the summer progresses,  just scroll down for the recipe below. 🙂

When life gives you squash, make squash bread!

Squash Bread – because zucchini can’t get all the summer bread attention!)

Squash Bread


  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups sugar (this can be adjusted down if you prefer less sugar, or substitute with Splenda) 
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 tsp. ground cinnamon (again, adjust these spices to your taste preference)
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups shredded summer squash (of course, zucchini works, too… or some of each, whatever you have, it will still come out good!)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs until fluffy.
  3. Beat in the sugar, oil, and vanilla.
  4. Gradually mix in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  5. Fold in the squash. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
