My two young children love this buttercup yellow bread. Squash makes it moist and goes so well with the cinnamon. This will be a welcome addition to a brunch or dinner table.—Misty Thompson, Gaylesville, Alabama

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in squash and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Fold in walnuts.

"I like the flavor of the bread but it did not bake up right. It was not baked right in the middle of the entire loaf. It was somewhat doughy yet and not fluffy like quick bread should be. I am diabetic so the only change I made was to substitute 1 cup splenda for 1 of the cups of sugar. Also I did not make the glaze for on top in order to save on calories. the over all taste is good but I wonder what I did wrong. I made it twice and thought that maybe it was to much to only make 2 loaves so the second time I made it into 3 loaves and came out with the same doughy middle. Any ideas?"
