My family just loves this bread! It has a beautiful pale orange color and the squash makes it so moist.

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.

Brush loaves with butter while warm from oven for a prettier loaf. I made 2 loaves of bread and a pan of biscuits. Really a pretty yellow for fall enjoyment !
