  • 14 oz (400g) butternut squash deseeded, with or without the skin and chopped
  • 10 1/2 oz (300g) light brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt
  • 10 1/1 oz (300g) plain flour
  • 2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon to your taste
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to fan assisted 160C / 180C / 350F / gas 4.
  • Line your muffin tins with muffin cases.
  • Whizz the butternut squash in a food processor until it is finely chopped.
  • Add in the sugar and eggs and whizz till mixed.
  • Add in a pinch of salt, the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and olive oil and whizz again until just combined. Do not over mix it.
  • Fill the muffin cases with the muffin batter and bake in the oven for about 25 mins or until cooked (ie if you stick a wooden skewer through a muffin it comes out clean).
  • Let the muffins cool a bit on a wire rack before serving (if you can wait that long).


These freeze very well, so double or triple the recipe if you have a lot of butternut squash to use.
