Why I Love This Recipe

Just by tasting this bread you would never know there was squash in it. People love the this colorful bread, it is delicious and fluffy, they have a hard time guessing where the pretty orange tint comes from. Makes three loaves, plenty to go around.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 packages (1/4 ounces each) active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110-115 F.)
2 tablespoons sugar
2-1/2 cups mashed cooked buttercup or butternut squash
2 cups milk
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 teaspoons salt
13 cups all-purpose flour


In a vary large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the squash, milk, brown sugar, butter, eggs and salt; mix well. Add 6 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic; about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.

Punch dough down. Divide into three portions; shape into loaves. Place in three greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 350 F. for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 3 loaves.
