Bread Baking Day #14 - Pumpkin Bread

breadbakingday #14 - colored breads bbd #14 - Colored Breads hosted by Grain Power Deadline: December 1st, 2008 For this round our host Boaz challenged us:
We usualy judge breads on account of their taste, smell, and structure. One thing we often overlook is the color of bread. Breads usually have a white crumb or a brown/black crumb. The crusts range from golden brown to black. This round of bread baking day will focus on breads that have other colors, either in the crumb or crust (or both!). So, to participate in this round of Bread Baking Day, bake a bread whose crumb or crust are not of the normal colors of bread. For example, incorporating walnuts into the dough tints the crumb a gorgeous purple. Adding Saffron or turmeric gives a gorgeous yellow crumb. Carrots color the bread orange. The only limitation is that whatever addition you use to give your bread color must be natural. Specifically, no food colorings may be used.
Considering this I first was thinking about making a carrot bread. But then I had some pumpkin purree left - too much to be thrown away and too less to make another batch of pumpkin gnocchi. So I thought why not try a pumpkin bread instead, should get a nice color anyway, right?

Pumpkin Bread

270 gram flour (spelt) 30 gram cornmeal 3,5 gram dried yeast 40 gram honey 150 gram pumpkin purree 5 gram salt 15 gram milk powder 1 egg 200m ml coconut milk
  • Mix all ingredients together in your food processor. Knead until gluten is fully developed and the dough is elastic, smooth, non-sticky and leave from sides of mixing bowl. Cover with a damp towel and allow the dough to ferment until double in size, about 60 minutes.
  • Take out the dough and press out the gas produced during the proof. Divide it into 4 portions. Round up and let rest for about 20 minutes.
  • Roll each dough out and roll up and place in a pan. After shaping, let the dough rise up to 2/3 full. Brush with egg wash or milk. Bake in a preheated 170C oven for about 40 minutes.
