Fluffy Pumpkin Loaf


I finally found time over the weekend to experiment this bread which I have longed to try.


Using my Fluffy Loaf recipe, I replaced half the water content of the main dough with freshly steamed pumpkin mesh.

It turns out golden yellow with a crusty top and good crumb.

    1. Thanks Pamela! 🙂 I can already imagine how beautiful your pumpkin will be. Wish I can fly all the way there to see you harvest. I should be trying more bread with it too. Let me know if you make.

    1. Its funny this loaf turns out really big although I did not work in much extra flour. I wonder if its the pumpkin that creates the magic. Will have to try it again. And perhaps send a loaf over once its out from the oven 🙂

    1. Thanks Lindy. I love pumpkin too! It’s such an inexpensive and healthy food. I’m gonna try mixing more of it into my next dough and see if it’ll work as well 🙂

    1. Thanks Kelly! I’m lucky it came out good. Now I would love to make it into a pumpkin baguette. Wish me luck! Let me know, if you try the ciabatta 🙂

  1. And you succeeded very well! I love pumpkin bread but this isn’t pumpkin bread aka cake but in real bread! I love that idea! Your bread looks amazing & must be very tasty toasted too with some lovely butter & honey on top,..oooh yeah! Beautiful pics too, Danny!

    1. Thank you Sophie. To be honest, I am quite afraid of heavy bread aka cake so have been trying to figure out my preferred recipe. I’m glad it came out well! And I would love to add more pumpkin in my next dough to find out a well balanced proportion. butter and HONEY! why didn’t I thought of that! It will be lovely 🙂

  2. Such a beautiful loaf of bread! It looks so soft and fluffy, like something you can only get from a professional baker.

  3. This looks absolutely delicious Danny! Your bread making skills are top notch, as per usual 🙂 I’d love to have a thick slice of this bread, toasted with cream cheese, a drizzle of honey, cinnamon and toasted almonds! I often eat these toppings on warm pumpkin scones so I can imagine how good this bread would be!

    1. Thank you my friend, you just gave me a great idea to enjoy it at its best! Now I would love to try making it into a baguette. Yeah, pumpkin baguette. I know it sounds crazy but who knows it may work..wish me luck! 🙂

    1. So sorry Sofia. I missed your comment. The pumpkin really does magic to the overall dough. Other than the colour, it also helped the bread to stay soft for more days than normal. 🙂

      1. So the pumpkin is like your secret magical ingredient! Only that now its not secret because it in your blog for all the world to see 🙂

  4. Danny, your pictures are gorgeous! 🙂 your loaf of bread looks delicious and I love the crusty top! 🙂 Wish you could bake this for me! 🙂
    wish a great weekend too! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Ingrid. If I am leaving near you, I will drop by so often with a different loaf each time to share in your beautiful home 🙂

    1. Thank you very much! I’m sure you will be able to master it after some practice. I knead by hand. It will be much easier if you already have a mixer for bread dough 🙂

    1. Thank you very much for the compliment. Some of it has actually turned into french toast drizzle with maple syrup and a touch of cinnamon powder 🙂
