Buttercup Yeast Bread Recipe

Just by tasting it, you’d never know there was squash in this delicious, fluffy bread. People love the colorful slices, even though they have a hard time guessing where the pretty orange tint comes from! —Kelly Kirby Westville, Nova Scotia

Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 3

    packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast

  • 1/2

    cup warm water (110° to 115°)

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

  • 2-1/2

    cups mashed cooked buttercup or butternut squash

  • 2

    cups 2% milk

  • 2/3

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 2/3

    cup butter, softened

  • 2

    eggs, lightly beaten

  • 3

    teaspoons salt

  • 13

    cups all-purpose flour

Directions

Directions In a very large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the squash, milk, brown sugar, butter, eggs and salt and about 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. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350° 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 (16 slices each).
