I've made this bread many times, including last Saturday.  It disappeared very fast.  It is yummy and simple to make.  Kathleen

      1/4  ounce            packaged active dry yeast -- (about 1 tablespoon)
      1/2  cup               warm water -- (110F)
    1      teaspoon        salt
    2      teaspoons      caraway seed
    2      tablespoons   molasses -- (not blackstrap)
    1      cup               fresh or canned pumpkin puree
    3      cups              unbleached all-purpose flour
                                      plus additional flour for kneading


This delicious yeast-risen pumpkin bread is a welcome alternative to sweet, rich, quick pumpkin breads.  It also makes fine sandwiches and fabulous toast.

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a large bowl, mix yeast and water, stirring to combine and dissolve.  Add salt, caraway seed and molasses, stirring to mix.

Add pumpkin puree, stirring to mix.  Add 3 cups flour.  Stir with a large, sturdy spoon until all flour is incorporated and dough leaves sides of bowl.

Turn out onto a floured surface.  Knead until dough is smooth and satiny, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Lightly oil bowl.  Return dough to bowl.  Cover with a clean, damp tea towel.  Set in a warm place (85F) to rise.

Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.  Punch down and shape into loaf.  Place in a lightly oiled bread pan.  Cover with a clean, damp tea towel.  Let rise until doubled and indentation made with thumb remains.

Bake until browned on top and bottom sounds hollow when tapped, about 35 minutes.  Remove from pan.  Let cool on a wire rack.


Substitute 2 tablespoons brown sugar for molasses, and 1/2 cup raisins for caraway seed.  Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to liquid ingredients.  Substitute whole-wheat or rye flour for 1/3 of the white flour in original recipe.

To make a pumpkin-cinnamon loaf, when dough is punched down, instead of  shaping it into a loaf, stretch the dough into a rectangular shape.  Sprinkle with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon, then roll dough up from short side to form a loaf Place in loaf pan and proceed with recipe.
