Harvested 6 pumpkins from my garden a month ago and gave 5 away. Left with one and wondering what to do with it. A quarter went into the soup. And left with 3/4. Many people in my FB asked me to make bread with it and so I thought , why not?
So googled for pumpkin bread and end up with a few versions of pumpkin Hokkaido bread and I wrote down till I have no idea where I got it from. Anyway I tried to add in and minus some of my own and here's the final recipe:
Pumpkin Hokkaido Bread
- 100gm Steamed pumpkin (you don't have to mash it up, just dunk it into the Bread Maker)
- 125 fresh milk
- 1tbsp milk powder
- 8tsp castor sugar
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 egg
- 75gm Whipping Cream
- 330gm Bread flour
- 1/4 tsp Clabber Girl Double Action Baking Powder
- 40gm cake flour
- 1tsp yeast (make a well in the flour)
- After first beep add in 1 tbsp softened butter
- Raisin, chia seed, pumpkin seed/sunflower seed (add in according to your preference)
Add in the ingredient from top to bottom following the sequence.
And your bread is ready in 2:55 hours.
Your can omit the double action baking powder, it's just that when I use that for my bread, the bread remains fluffier longer for few days. By then everything should be gone :)
The bread is cakey-bread feeling. It's sweet and very filling. You can eat it just like that, like a cake.
Definitely a keeper. Love the colour especially!
- To get evenly cut bread, you can buy the bread slicer from Mr.DIY for rm7.90.
- A good bread knife is very crucial to get nice cut.
