Butternut Squash Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

Butternut squash is often referred to as a winter squash. It’s naturally sweet and high in both vitamin-A and beta-carotene. While the squash itself imparts little flavor to the bread it does make the bread extra moist and lends a light, orange color to the texture. We’re going to take it up a notch with the addition of pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and brown sugar.

 ½ cup of milk at 110 degrees Fahrenheit or 43 degrees Celsius
 ¼ cup of butter melted
 ¼ teaspoon salt
 ¼ cup of brown sugar
 ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
 ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
 ½ teaspoon of ground cloves
 ½ cup of boiled butternut squash
 1 egg
 3 cups of flour
 2 teaspoons of bread machine or active dry yeast

Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated in the ingredients section of the recipe.


Select the basic white setting for a 1.5-pound loaf and a medium crust.


When done, remove the loaf from the bread pan and let cool for 10 minutes.


Slice and serve.
