Makes 2 loaves


  1. In large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour with yeast, honey, oil and milk. Cover with damp cloth and let set in warm place until doubled in size, about 20 minutes.

  2. Add remaining ingredients, except eggs, pumpkin puree and honey, and mix until loosely combined.

  3. Add pumpkin puree, eggs and honey and knead until smooth, about 10 minutes.

  4. Form into a ball and place in clean, dry bowl. Cover with damp cloth and let sit in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

  5. Punch dough to release gases and divide into two. Knead the 2 pieces into ovals to fit bread pans.

  6. Coat 2 bread pans with cooking spray and place one piece of dough in each. Set the pans in a warm place to rise for 30-40 minutes until the dough doubles. Preheat an oven 375°F

  7. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
