Pumpkin Yeast Bread


Autumn is the season for pumpkin recipes. So here is another one, which comes from one of my favourite baking source Dr. Oetker Backen A-Zangiesrecipes. This deliciously soft yeast-risen pumpkin bread is a great alternative to the moist, dense pumpkin quick bread, which is leavened with baking powder or/and baking soda.

  1. Cut the pumpkin flesh into small dices. Place them in a pot with water over medium heat. Cook until soft and puree the pumpkin with a blender.
  2. First add milk, honey, olive oil, salt and pumpkin puree in the pan of your bread machine. Then add in flour. Make a dry well in the center and add the yeast to the well. Program the bread machine the "Dough" cycle.
  3. Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and press it down to flatten. Form the dough into a roll and place into a greased 30cmx11cm loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Make a 1cm deep slash in the center along the length of the dough. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the bread pan and cool on a rack.

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi 18/9/10 10:52

I love both yeast-leavened and baking powder/soda-leavened pumpkin bread. But, I think pumpkin itself doesn't impart much flavor except that additional sweetness and golden color. Still, that doesn't stop me from using pumpkin in my cooking and baking too! Yours looks wholesome! Nice golden color too! =D

Enjoy the best of fall! Bake with gobs of apples too!

This bread looks beautiful - what color! I have often made pumpkin quick bread, but this looks much lighter and less intense. I bet it would be wonderful toasted and spread with some cream cheese.

It looks delicious. A must make..I think I could use Butternut Squash. It looks really really good

tasteofbeirut 19/9/10 17:27

I love the color and softness of this pumpkin bread! You are right, it is a great option to consider instead of the dense and sweet pumpkin bread that is more a cake than a bread; this one is a true bread. What would you suggest serving it with? cheese or butter?

Your pumpkin bread reminds me of a brioche - in fact, once I had lunch at a really fancy restaurant in Sydney but what I loved the most was their pumpkin brioche - I never found out the recipe but judging from your photos this would be just as delicious.
