  • 6 ½ cups / 780g cake / all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cups /310ml milk

  • 1/2 cup /118 ml / 170g honey
  • 1 ⅓ cups cooked mashed butternut
  • ¼ cup buttermilk

  1. Using a large bowl, mix the yeast, salt and 3 cups / 360g of the flour.
  2. In a pan, melt the butter and add the milk and honey and heat until just warm.
  3. Add to dry ingredients and mix until combined and then stir in the cooked mashed butternut.
  4. Mix in the remaining 3 ½ cups / 420g of flour and mix to combine.
  5. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour,until doubled in size.

  8. Bake until golden brown between 20-25 minutes.
