Ingredients

  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup pumpkin (canned)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves

Instructions

  • In stand mixer bowl, add 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar, salt and spices; mix well. In saucepan or microwave-safe dish, heat water, oil and pumpkin to 120-130°F. Add to flour mixture. Using a paddle attachment, blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Add eggs; beat on medium speed for 4 minutes.
  • Switch to dough hook attachment. Gradually stir in pecans and enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    (NOTE: For hand mixing: following above steps, mix ingredients in large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon or dough whisk. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic.)
  • Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn to grease top. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after poking dough with finger down to second knuckle, about 1 hour.
  • Prepare pan: Grease a 9×5-inch bread pan; set aside.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Roll or pat into a 14×7- inch rectangle. Starting with shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place in prepared pan. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching.
  • Preheat oven to 375º F.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.

I have a bread machine and no recipes. I’m so glad you offer so many recipes for a bread machine.
