    Chef Asdren’s Squash Cornbread

    1 ½ cups of ground cornmeal
    1 cup of flour
    1 teaspoon of baking soda
    1 ½ teaspoon of baking powder
    ½ tsp of salt
    1/3 cup of brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    ½ to ¾ cup of buttermilk
    1 cup of shredded Butternut squash
    1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

    Grease or spray an 8-inch square baking pan or deep-dish pie plate. Heat oven to 375°. In a mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, ½ cup of the buttermilk, squash, and vegetable oil. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry; mix until well blended, adding more buttermilk if needed. Batter will be thick, but easy to stir by hand. Spread batter in the prepared baking pan.
    Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until nicely browned.
