Easy Summer Squash Bread - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Easy Summer Squash Bread is the perfect way to enjoy the abundance of yellow squash. Every year we put out a few plants of yellow squash and zucchini and we always end up with way to much! This is a creative way to enjoy this great garden vegetable in a delicious bread. We love zucchini bread and the addition of yellow squash to this recipe was great!

Easy Summer Squash Bread Ingredients Needed:

Yellow Squash


Brown Sugar

White granulated Sugar

All Purpose Flour


Baking Powder

Baking Soda





Nuts of choice

This bread is super easy to make and the combination of cinnamon, allspice and vanilla give is a really good flavor. We love to add pecans to pretty much any bread however you can use any nuts you like or leave them out all together. You could easily double this recipe and make two loaves. I found that this bread was really moist and wonderful warmed up with butter. This bread would be perfect for any brunch!

Of course you don’t have to use half yellow squash and half zucchini. I think you could use all yellow squash and this would still turn out delicious.
