Butternut Squash Bread Recipe
"This yeast bread is scrumptious served warm or toasted," promises Agnes Miller of Marshall, Illinois. "A friend shared the recipe years ago."
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1-1/4 cups mashed cooked butternut squash
- 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 7 to 7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 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.
- 3. Punch dough down. Shape into three loaves; place in greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- 4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until tops are golden. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 3 loaves.
