A Witch in the Kitchen: "Delicious Pumpkin Bread"

in #foodlast year

Hello Dear Witches...!

Adding some vegetables in the preparation of breads, brings to this flavor and also the nutritional benefits that this may have, likewise is one of the best alliances we can make when we have children who are not very friends of the same, as is the case of My Mathias, literally hates the pumpkin, I think I gave him too much of this when he was younger, and now abhors it.

and good since the evil is done, it only remains to solve things, and always look for ways to integrate this type of food into your diet, and one of the easiest and most delicious ways is with bread, which is one of your favorite foods. Making these breads is really very easy, and the truth is that the result is the best, has just the right touch of sweet and salty, which make it ideal either to accompany a good coffee or prepare a delicious sandwich.

A soft crust bread, and a very rich, spongy crumb, which you use to make delicious hamburgers, that was the result of this recipe. But come with me and I'll show you how easy it is to prepare it. <Enjoy! .


  • 1 Kg of all-purpose wheat flour.
  • 2 eggs.
  • 16 g dry yeast or 50 g fresh yeast.
  • 150 g sugar.
  • 150 ml of water.
  • 300 gr pumpkin puree.
  • 140 gr of melted butter.
  • 1 tsp common salt

  • Preparation

    • Difficulty Level: Medium
    • Preparation time: 120 Minutes
    • Baking time: 30 Minutes
    • Yield: 22 Portions.

    • Whenever I prepare bread, I start with the pre-ferment, this besides minimizing the time of leavening of the bread, it helps me to know if the yeast is in good condition, to do so we put the warm water in a cup, add the yeast and mix, continue adding three tablespoons of sugar (of which we will use in the preparation) plus another three tablespoons of wheat flour, mix everything very well and cover, leaving it inside the oven off for about 15 minutes.

      On the other hand we add to the wheat flour the sugar and the salt and we mix, we continue making a hole in the center and adding the mashed pumpkin and the butter mixed with the eggs.

      Add the pre-ferment, and it's time to get our hands dirty for a while, integrate as much as we can the mixture into the bowl and then turn over an allowance, to continue kneading between 10 and 15 minutes, until we get a smooth and uniform dough. We have it inside a bowl that we can previously spread with some oil, and we cover it to take it to the oven turned off for one hour, until it doubles its size.

      After this time, our mass has already doubled its volume, we proceed to degasify and turn again on the table, where we fold it on itself to make a cylinder of mass, and thus get the portions.

      We make portions of 80 gr approximately and form our buns, to arrange them then in a greased tray, which we then cover with a rewinder to let leaven again for 30 minutes and take them to a preheated oven at 180 ° C for about 30 minutes.

      If you want you can paint the breads with beaten egg and milk, to obtain a more golden color, however I use only water with a little vanilla because I wanted them just as they were, in addition that gives me a soft crust, as I said before, the result was a success, both in flavor and texture I leave enchanted, and what worried me most, My Mathias loved it! I think I will experiment more often with this type of bread, a good sweet potato bread would be great, we have to try, see and you Which vegetable do you recommend me to experiment with these breads?

      Those do look like perfect little buns! I love putting pumpkin in just about everything. I just used some in veggie burgers last night. @birdsinparadise has also used veggies in her homemade breads for a delicious and healthy result!

      Adding vegetables to breads is really good, plus it's healthy. Just make one with carrot and it's delicious. The @birdsinparadise recipes are delicious in their entirety!

      I really love recipes that include pumpkin, and this was no exception, they are delicious!

      Those look divine if only we had smell-a-vision. Really loved the detail you showed by including photos of all the steps.

      The smell of bread in the oven is one of the most addictive things I've ever known hahaha.

      This punpkin bread looms great. I wonder if it would be nice dipped in meat sauce?

      I think it would look great!
