How to make it

  • In a large bowl, stir yeast into water to soften. Add milk, eggs, pumpkin, oil, 4 cups flour, brown sugar, salt, ginger and cardamom to yeast mixture. Beat vigorously for 2 minutes.
  • Gradually add remaining flour, a little at a time, until you have a dough stiff enough to knead. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead, adding flour as necessary, until you have a smooth, elastic dough.
  • Put dough into an oiled bowl. Turn once to coat entire ball of dough with oil. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly oiled work surface. Divide dough in half. Shape dough into loaves and place in well-greased 10 x 5-inch pans or, shape half into a loaf, and other half into 12 large dinner rolls. Cover with a towel and let rise until almost doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Bake in a preheated 375°F oven. Loaves bake about 30 minutes, rolls about 20. Check the internal temperature of each with an instant-read thermometer; a reading of 190°F means bread or rolls are done.
  • Immediately remove bread or rolls from pans and cool on a wire rack to prevent crust from becoming soggy. For a shiny crust, brush tops of bread or rolls lightly with vegetable oil. Makes 2 large loaves, or 1 large loaf and 12 dinner rolls.

    LindaLMT's I Made It II Review: Pumpkin Yeast Bread

    Fabulous recipe!! Very much like an ever so slightly sweet, richer, white bread. The color is gorgeous from the pumpkin but isn't heavy in pumpkin flavor like quick breads are. I don't know if I can taste the spices, maybe I do, but because I didn't bake one without I have nothing to compare it to. Regardless I wouldn't adjust them because I think the bread is perfect as is.
    I want to note that a packet of yeast is only 2 1/4 teaspoons not a Tablespoon so I adjusted the recipe to use that of the packets and I also used Bread Flour.
    Would be ideal sliced thick for French toast or warm with butter along side a stew or soup. Heck it would even be wonderful used for a turkey sandwich. Thanks Peetabear for sharing!!
