Pumpkin Cranberry Yeast Bread: There's sunlight in every bites.

 Bread baking is one of my dearest hobby, beside from having delicious homemade bread, it's  fun to make.

 I want to try this kind of bread, the one with vegetable puree ^^, it's something I never made before. Pumpkin is my first choice, well I love the taste of it. There a lot of recipe to choose from but finally I have to adapt it by myself, haha, because I have the vision of my pumpkin bread in my mind. I want lovely yellow bread with a spot of red cranberries and a cinnamon sugar filling.
The bread is super soft with a touch of sweetness from brown sugar and richness from butter (as a filling), I fall in love with it from the first bite ^^.
The bread is moist so it take long time to bake, if the top of the bread start to brown, cover it with a piece of aluminium foil and bake until it become firm.

Pumpkin Cranberry Yeast Bread
Make 18 cm bread

Bread
45ml ............................... Water
40ml ............................... Whipping cream
1 ...................................... Egg
80g ................................. Pumpkin (steamed and puree)
1tbsp .............................. Vegetable oil
3g .................................... Instant yeast
200g ............................... Bread flour (depend on your pumpkin, you can use up to 250g)
28g .................................. Light brown sugar
1/2tsp ............................ Salt
40g ................................. Dried cranberries

Filling
30g ................................. Butter (soft)
45g ................................. Brown sugar
1/4tsp ............................ Cinnamon powder



Mix together egg, water, pumpkin puree, and whipping cream.
Put the flour, the sugar and yeast in a bowl, whisk to combine, add and salt whisk again. Pour the egg and pumpkin mixture into the bowl.
Use large spoon (or pastry scraper) to mix everything together, and knead briefly to bring all the ingredients together.
Take the dough out of the bowl and knead, you will see the dough will be elastic after about 2 minutes.

 Add the oil and knead by using the heel of your hands to compress and push the dough away from you, then fold it back over itself. Give the dough a little turn and repeat. Put the weight of your body into the motion and get into a rhythm. Keep folding over and compressing the dough. Knead for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is soft, pliable, smooth and slightly shiny, almost satiny. Add the cranberries and knead until smooth.
See how to knead bread, here.

Put the dough into a light buttered bowl. Let the dough rise in a warm place until double in size (can be 1 hour or 1 hour and a half check often depend on the temperature).


 Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place the baking paper in the pan.
Roll the dough into 25x25 cm square.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together.
Spread the butter over the dough and sprinkle the filling over the dough, then roll into the cylinder.


Cut into 7 pieces and place in the prepared pan.

Let the dough rise until almost double in size, about 30 minutes.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Hi, tried making it yesterday. The dough is really wet, so much so that I have to add close to 100gm of flour. Was a bit worried that it would not rise. Was lazy, used the bread machine. Luckily it rose beautifully. After cutting and leaving it for a second proofing, I then left it in the fridge overnite (too late to bake). Thraw it in the morning and the aroma is fantastic. My husband and son love it - they are now asking for another bake.

Is it normal to have such a wet dough - will it "work" if I do not add the additional flour?

Thanks for sharing. Love your blog. Joyce

I think it depends on the pumpkin, and the protein of the flour too ^^. Actually because I didn't see the dough so I really don't know it will work or not(sorry about that), but you can try it by letting the dough rest until it adsorb the liquid for 10-15 minutes, it will be easier to knead.
