  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 1/2 teaspoon yeast 2 packets
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6 cups bread flour

Extra ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar mixed in a small bowl
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • spray bottle with water
  • butter for brushing on baked loaves


  • Mix water, yeast and sugar. Allow to sit 5 minutes or until yeast looks foamy.
  • Add remaining dough ingredients and mix in stand mixer or with wooden spoon until evenly distributed.
  • Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic.
    Note: you may need a littel more flour (1/4 cup) to prevent the dough from being too sticky to work with.
    Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil to the bowl. Place dough in bowl, turn to coat both sides.
  • Cover with a warm cloth and let rise for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Once your dough has doubled in size,  dump it onto your work space.
  • Divide into two sections.
  • Roll each section into a 9x13 rectangle. Lightly spritz dough with water.
  • In a small bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves. Sprinkle with 4T cinnamon sugar mixture over each rolled out loaf.
  • Then spritz with a little more water from the spray bottle. (This will help the sugar and cinnamon mixture stick to the dough.)
  • Roll dough tightly into a log. Pinch ends tightly to close, as well as the seam.
  • Place into greased bread pans, seam side down.
  • Let rise for 40 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake loaves for 30-35 minutes.
  • Brush loaves with butter then remove bread from pans and cool on a cooling rack.



This bread freezes well. Wrap in plastic and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw completely before slicing.
