For 2 medium loaves you will need:

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks.
Tips: Freeze baked loaves if you cannot use them the same day as they are baked. To serve, reheat in microwave oven on high speed for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or in 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
Use Hubbard, Acorn, turban, or any other yellow winter squash to make this bread. The fragrance of squash blended with spices and pecans makes this especially appealing to serve hot out of the oven with coffee or tea. For a special treat at breakfast, toast thick slices slightly.
Preparation time: about 20 minutes. Oven temperature: 350 degrees. Baking time: 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
