Pumpkin Ginger Bread ( For Baking Partners)


Due to October being the Halloween month most of the recipes posted in various blogs are pumpkin based .
 As Pumpkin is inevitably used during this month  Baking Partners too suggested some pumpkin based dishes and this Pumpkin Ginger Bread caught my attentions.

As the name itself suggests the bread has a lovely gingery flavour and is super moist . It tasted yummy just with butter . Thanks Swathi   for this lovely recipe.








Ingredients :

2 tbsp..............warm water
1 tbsp.................active dry yeast
1/3 cup ..................warm milk
1 ..........................egg beated
1 cup ...................pumpking puree
1 tbsp..................vegetable oil
3 cups..................maida
2 tbsp..................sugar
1 tsp....................salt
1 tbsp..................finely grated ginger









Method :

In a large bowl mix warm water, sugar and yeast and keep aside to rise for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes the yeast would have formed a foamy mixture.

Now add milk , beaten egg, pumpkin puree, salt  and oil and mix well.

Add to it half the maida and beat vigorously.

The mixture should be very loose and sticky.

Now add the remaining maida and knead very well for 10 minutes with hands.

You will get smooth and elastic dough.

If the dough is still sticky you can add more maida.

Now apply oil and make a ball of the kneaded dough.

Keep the dough in a big greased bowl and plastic wrap it.

Keep it aside for 1 hour till it becomes double in size.

Now punch and knead the dough well and keep it it greased bread tin.

Let the dough again rise for 45 minutes.

Bake the bread in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 1/2 an hour or till it is done.

When baked the bread top becomes hard and when pressed with finger it should spring back.

This is an indication that the bread is perfectly baked.

Slice the bread when it is completely cooled.
