  • 3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. margarine melted
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon


  • Coat a standard loaf pan with nonstick spray or grease it with butter and then coat with flour.
  • In a bowl of a stand mixer, whisk flour, yeast, salt, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Microwave milk, and margarine until it’s almost melted.
  • Mix with egg and pumpkin puree.
  • Add the milk and egg mixture to the dry ingredients, and start mixing on medium using the dough hook. Keep mixing until the dough comes together. The dough might be a bit sticky.
  • Add one or two more tablespoons of flour and keep mixing the dough for about seven minutes. 
  • Transfer the dough into an oiled bowl and brush the dough with little oil.
  • Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and a towel.
  • Let the dough rise for 1 1/2 hour.
  • Transfer the dough on to the floured surface and roll it out into a big rectangle (11X20) the side closest to you should be the long side.
  • Brush the melted butter over the dough up to the edges.
  • Cover with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Cut the dough into 5 long strips (length would be 20 inch)
  • Stack all five on top of each other very carefully.
  • Cut the stack into five equal pieces.
  • Now you have 5 stacks of 5.
  • Place them in the loaf pan.
  • Cover it with a towel and let it rise for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F/180C.
  • Put the loaf pan on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Cover the bread loosely with aluminum foil (so the top won’t burn) and bake it for another 20 minutes.
  • Let it cool for 15 minutes and then transfer it to a serving plate.
