Made with butternut squash puree, this sweet tea bread is a treat at breakfast -- or as a snack anytime.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan, and set aside. Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, squash purÃ©e, melted butter, and 1/4 cup water. Fold squash mixture into flour mixture. Stir in pecans.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, and bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Turn bread out onto a wire rack, and let cool completely.
