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.

INGREDIENTS:
 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
DIRECTIONS:
1

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

2

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

3

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

4

Slice and serve.
