Traditional Recipe


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners or use a flexipan muffin mold.
  • Roast the acorn squash. Use these instructions.
  • Once you have a cup of pureed acorn squash, in a large bowl mix together with a KitchenAid or hand held mixer the puree, eggs, oil, buttermilk, white and brown sugars until thoroughly combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Combine just until incorporated; do not over mix. Pour into the prepared muffin pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 19-20 minutes.
  • Remove the muffin pan, let cool and then serve.


  • If you want to make a gluten free version of these muffins, substitute the regular all purpose flour for a gluten free flour. Ratios should remain the same.
