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.

Thank you! It taste good too 🙂
It looks absolutely perfect! Delicious! 🙂
Thank you 🙂 It’s even better when I turn it into French toast 🙂
It looks great and very fluffy! great post Danny!
Thanks Marie. It stays soft till the third day. Must be the magic of pumpkin.
Looks great, love adding some pumpkin to a recipe. Our pumpkins will be ready to pick later this summer, so I will be saving this to come back to.
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.
Looks light and luscious! Well done!!
Thanks! It is. And that tempts me to incorporate more pumpkin into my next dough.
This looks so big and fluffily! My whole family LOVES anything pumpkin so I am sure this would disappear before it even cooled off! 🙂
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 🙂
Danny – This loaf is such a beautiful colour. I love pumpkin and it’s SO good for you as well. Nice job! 🙂
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 🙂
oh wow, beautiful bread Danny! I’d say that was a successful experiment 😉 Still need to try your ciabatta recipe.
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 🙂
oooh, nice idea. Good luck!
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!
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 🙂
ooh yes! 😉
Such a beautiful loaf of bread! It looks so soft and fluffy, like something you can only get from a professional baker.
Aw…Thank you for the compliment! You are too kind. It does came out much lighter than what I expect. And it stays soft for 3 days.
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!
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! 🙂
With your skills, I am sure you’ll make a wonderful baguette Danny! Good luck (though I don’t think you’ll need it!)
You are too kind. 🙂
Yum looks really good! Wish I could try a slice 🙂
Thanks Jean, you know what? I can always pass you a fresh loaf somewhere in town to exchange for one of your lovely bento 🙂
That looks even better that breads you find in the store. What a wonderful piece of art.
Aw…you are too kind. Thank you so much for stopping by with such a nice comment….danny
I love pumpkin and I love fluffy bread so this looks perfect! Love that beautiful orange-y golden color. Great post Danny and it looks delicious! 🙂
Thanks Anne, The colour was a great surprise! It was actually quite plain before baking and worst during mixing 🙂
that looks exquisite! i just want to take a big bite 😛
Thank you! It is thick enough for a big bite and very fluffy too. 🙂
The colour looks very nice, its looks deliciously soft inside 🙂
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. 🙂
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 🙂
Haha! I bet many elsewhere had discovered it way before me 🙂 and its fun to share some tips. 🙂
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! 🙂
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 🙂
Your bread looks terrific. Love the crust and golden color of the bread.
Thank you Karen. The colour after baking is indeed a great surprise!
ciao! the colour and texture look just right. this is a bread i would bake and perhaps add pumpkin seeds. thanks.
Thank you very much. Adding Pumpkin seeds is such a great idea. I should do that next time too! 🙂
Beautiful bread, Danny!
Thank you kenley. I’m glad you like it!
Wow, your bread looks spectacular! I love the color, sure to brighten up any meal (without the artificial additives and colorings!)
Thank you. I am glad it turn out good. You are right. It feels great to enjoy homemade bread without all the scary chemicals.
Looks super yummy, Danny!
Thank you Francesca! It stays soft for a few days too.
How creative to add the pumpkin to your loaf. I always admire bloggers who make their own loaves…I’m still afraid to try!
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 🙂
I’m now hungry! Your pumpkin loaf looks scrumptious:-)
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 🙂
