I need to be honest with you: Cinderella had nothing to do with this Fairytale Pumpkin Bread. It’s all thanks to Tucson CSA (where I got the Magdalena big cheese squash in my weekly CSA share) and Sleeping Frog Farms (where Tucson CSA got the Magdalena big cheese squash for my weekly CSA share). Right about now you may be thinking, Hey. A Magdalena big cheese squash isn’t a fairytale pumpkin. And you’re right. But one look at a Magdalena big cheese squash (which, by the way, is one of the oldest cultivated squash varieties) will have you wondering when it’s going to transform into a chariot fit for a princess.
Luckily, you don’t have to wait to find out what magical powers this sweet, orange fleshed squash holds. If you act quickly, you can turn it into a loaf (or four) of Fairytale Pumpkin Bread.
But why is it called Fairytale Pumpkin Bread if it’s made with squash? You ask. Firstly, you ask a lot of questions. Secondly, squash bread sounds weird. Tastes delicious, but sounds really, really weird. Can we all agree that Fairytale Pumpkin Bread sounds way better? Great.
This tender and moist Fairytale Pumpkin Bread is naturally sweetened with raw honey, filled with whole grains, and contains enough squash to fulfill your daily vegetable requirement.
