When I found this recipe in a magazine and adapted it to my taste, it quickly became a family favorite. By canning half-pints of squash in the summer, I'm able to make these all winter long!


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 to 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup pureed cooked winter squash
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten


  1. In a large bowl, combine first six ingredients; mix well. In a separate bowl, combine milk, squash, butter and eggs; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups about two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes.
