It is Halloween season, so it is raining pumpkin recipes all over the food blogs. yup, this month Baking Partner's Challenge was suggeted by Tamy of 3 sides Crazy. She suggested 2 pumpkin bread recipes from King Arthur Flour website
I chose to bake yeast pumpkin bread.Oh my, we fell in love with this bread. It came out so soft n fluffy, i baked 2 loaves the same day.  I stays fresh for a week, when stored properly. It tastes yum when toasted with some cheese n pepper.
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup Warm Milk
1/2 Cup Warm Water

  • In a large bowl take flour, yeast,sugar  and salt together, whisk well for even mixing add add 1/4 cup warm water, sugar and yeast. Add Pumpkin Puree, warm milk and water and start making a dough. Knead into a soft dough. If needed use the other 1/4 cup of warm water.
  • Oil the bowl well, place the dough in it, cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rise for 1.5 hours or until doubled.
