Holiday Pumpkin Bread

A delicious and tasty pumpkin bread.


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 11 1/2 ounce flour
  • 8 1/2 ounce whole wheat flour or use only all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 ounce brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 15 ounce cans pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 ounce vegetable oil Safflower or Canola


Combine all of the dough ingredients, and mix and knead them until you’ve made a smooth, somewhat sticky dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set it aside to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours; it should have expanded somewhat, but won’t be wildly puffy.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly greased surface (a silicone rolling mat works well here), divide it in half, and divide each half into three pieces. Roll each piece into an 18″ log. Working with three logs at a time, make a braid, pinching the ends together. Coil the braid into a lightly greased 8″ or 9″ cake pan, shaping it into a wreath-like circle and pressing the ends together where they meet. Repeat with the remaining logs. Cover both pans with a proof cover or lightly greased plastic wrap, and let the wreaths rise for about 90 minutes, until they look puffy, though not doubled in bulk.

 Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for 30 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the wreaths from the oven, and allow them to cool on a rack.

Yield: two 8-inch wreaths. Or bake in 9x5x3 loaf bread pans.
