Acorn Squash Bread

1 medium acorn squash
1/2 oz yeast
3 tbls, pkd light brown sugar
1/3 cup warm water
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoon butter, melted
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 tablespoon orange rind, grated
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 teaspoon allspice, ground
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the squash in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Place, cut side down, in a baking pan. Add 1/2" of hot water. Bake, covered, until the squash is fork-tender (30-40 minutes). Scoop out the cooked squash and puree in a blender until smooth (you should wind up with 1 1/2 cups of squash puree for 2 loaves). Stir the yeast and sugar into the warm (110-115 degrees) water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in the buttermilk and butter. Stir in the squash puree, carrots, orange rind, all-purpose flour, 2/3 of the whole-wheat flour, the spices and salt. Mix in enough of the remaining whole-wheat flour to form a soft dough. Knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes). Place in a greased bowl and let rise, loosely covered, in a warm place until doubled in size (40-60 minutes). Punch down. Knead on a floured surface for about 5 minutes. Shape into loaves and place in greased (8 1/2"x4 1/2") loaf pans. Let rise, loosely covered, until doubled in size. Bake until loaves are golden and sound hollow when tapped (about 40 minutes). Cool on wire racks.

Almond And Rice Flour Bread With Poppy Seeds

1/2 cup whole almonds; with skins
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup water
4 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg; whole
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg white
3 teaspoon poppy seeds
2 tablespoon vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 x 4inch loaf pan.
Place almonds and 1/2 cup of the flour in bowl of a food processor and grind until a fine meal is formed--the flour will prevent the nuts from turning oily. Add remaining rice flour, the baking powder, salt and 2 teaspoons of the poppy seeds; process briefly.
Combine yogurt, water, whole egg, egg white and oil in a 2- cup measuring cup.
With processor motor running, pour liquid ingredients through feed tube over flour mixture, processing just long enough to mix.
Transfer batter to prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining poppy seeds, and bake for 55 minutes. Turn out onto a rack to cool. (Bread slices best after several hours, or the next day).
Makes one 18-ounce loaf (18 slices).
