Pumpkin Cinnamon Bread

  • Author: Strudel



  • 2 tablespoons instant or active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup (113g) lukewarm milk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups (340g) puréed pumpkin, either fresh or canned
  • 2 tablespoons (25g) vegetable oil
  • 6 1/2 cups (780g)  All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup (106g) brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of all spice, ground cloves, ground ginger



  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup (106g) brown sugar, packed
  • 4 teaspoons (11g) cinnamon


Egg wash:

  • 1 egg white beaten with 1 Tablespoon of water


  1. Place all of the ingredients (except filling and egg wash) into the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, mix until the ingredients come together. Then switch to the dough hook and knead to make a smooth, soft dough, about 5 minutes.
  2. Put the dough into a lightly greased bowl. Cover and let it rise until doubled, about 60 to 75 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, for the filling, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon, and set aside.
  4. Once the dough is doubled, gently deflate it and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide in half.
  1. Roll out 1/2 dough into a 9″ x 18″, 1/4″-thick rectangle. If the dough “fights back,” cover the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes to relax the gluten, then stretch it some more.
  1. Brush the milk lightly over the dough, coming to within an inch of the edges. Evenly sprinkle the filling over the dough, leaving the 1-inch border.
  2. Starting with a short end, roll the dough gently into a log, sealing the seam and ends.
  1. Weave the dough into the oiled loaf pan, creating swirls.Place in lightly greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pans.
  2. Repeat this process with the other dough and remaining half of cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  1. Cover the pans and let the loaves rise until almost doubled, about an hour. Toward the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Brush the risen loaves with the egg white wash.
  3. Bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes, or until its crust is a deep golden brown.
