Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add squash, milk, eggs, butter, sugar and salt; mix well. Gradually add 3-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

  4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until tops are golden. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 3 loaves.

"This bread is such a pretty color. People who don't like squash can't even tell that the squash is what gives it the wonderful flavor. I may make it for Thanksgiving this year for a change of pace. A real treat."
