I love baking and experimenting with different ingredients, this recipe was created thanks to the inspiration that my grandmother planted in me.
She used to make a delicious butternut squash bread, the only thing I did was add one or two ingredient to make it even more delicious.
It is fluffy, with a texture and flavor that will impress you, you never would believe that this is a butternut squash and carrot bread.
My grandmother baked delicious breads and every time I try to recreate one of the recipes that she made my house smell like nostalgia, and transports me to my childhood, sitting at the kitchen watching my grandmother created new recipes.
Hope you like this bread is full of love and delicious memories.
And today we are celebrating all the things orange, because fall is everywhere. Come with us and be part of the #SundaySupper family and enjoy all the recipes.
