Yeasted Pumpkin Bread #BreadBakers

I have been thinking of baking bread with pumpkin but never got an opportunity to do so. That is because my daughter will eat only savoury breads and son is selective with fruits. Hence couldn’t bake this bread for them, instead baked it for ourselves now and it is definitely delicious. For this month of Bread bakers, Kylee of Kylee cooks is the host and she challenged us to bake bread with pumpkin as the star ingredient. After a lot of blog hopping, I decide that I would bake this bread as it fits perfectly the theme of bread bakers and mega marathon, where my theme happens to be FRUITS
This recipe is adapted from Killer Bunnies.Inc

All purpose flour
3 1/ cups
Fresh pumpkin Puree
1 cup
Active dry yeast
2 ¼ tsp
1/4 cup
1/3 cup
2 tbsp
Cane sugar
1/4 cup
1 tsp
Dry ginger powder
1/4 tsp
Cardamom powder
1/4 tsp

Remove the skin, fibres and seeds from the pumpkin. Puree it into a smooth paste
Now to the bowl of the a stand mixer , insert the dough kneading hook, add all the ingredients and run on MINIMUM speed till everything comes together in one lump
Now increase the speed to 1 and run the machine for 7 minutes and you see that it has become pliable dough now
Transfer this dough to a well-oiled bowl and cover it loosely
Let it rest for an hour for it to double
Now take out the dough, punch the air out, roll out into a rectangle, and then start rolling from the short side into a log
Place the rolled log into a well-greased bread mould.
Cover it loosely and let it rise again for 45 minutes
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 190C
Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes or till it sound hollow when tapped
Transfer it to a wire rack when done
Remove it from the mould and let it cool completely

Serve with butter and jam
