Pretty Orange Squash Rolls and Bread

I had a Hubbard squash sitting on my kitchen table begging to be baked.  So, I baked the squash and made up some squash rolls. I made enough dough to bake up a loaf of squash bread as well.

Sourdough Squash Rolls  (makes about 4 lb 8 oz of dough/2061g – half the amounts for one loaf or one pan of rolls)

  • 9 oz/255g  -starter @ 100% hydration
  • 12 oz/340g – water
  • 3 oz/85g  -sour cream
  • 2 oz/56g – melted cooled butter
  • 2 oz/56g – brown sugar
  • .7 oz/19g – salt
  • 12 oz/340g – baked, sieved squash – I didn’t sieve my squash I let the flecks show
  • 16 oz/453g – bread flour
  • 16 oz/453g  – ap flour
I mixed all of the ingredients in the order they are listed. Incorporate ingredients with your hands or dough mixer until you have a sticky cohesive mass. This dough is sticky.
.
.
Cover and let ferment for six hours, folding the dough twice during fermentation. I made 12 rolls weighing about 3 oz/85g  each. They were put into an oiled glass  pan 13 x 9 inches. The rolls were covered in oil before placing in the pan.
.
.
With the rest of the dough I made a boule (round) loaf. I covered it in oil and placed it in an oiled 8.5″ diameter baking dish.
.
.
I covered both dishes with plastic wrap and allowed them to ferment at room temperature for one hour and then placed them in the refrigerator overnight. Next morning I took the rolls and loaf out and allowed them to proof at room temperature for about 4 hours.
.
.
I glazed the bread and rolls with egg wash and sprinkled unhulled sesame seeds on them.
.
.
Then when they were proofed, I baked them at 425 for 35 -55 minutes (or your bread thermometer reaches 205F).
.
I took the loaf out of the baking dish as soon as it cooled slightly. I didn’t want a soggy bottom crust.
.
.
This bread is so pretty and moist. It kept fresh and moist for several days, makes great sandwiches and delicious french toast.
