The Domestic Vegan’s Pumpkin Yeast Bread

October 25, 2010 by Keri

It’s no secret I love my bread machine.  Sure, making bread by hand isn’t much more difficult and can but fun, but I think somehow the bread machine fulfills my childhood desire for one of those fancy Easy Bake Ovens.  Those commercials made it look so cool didn’t they?!  You’re just chillin’ in your room, giving Barbie a bad hair cut, chowing on platefuls of sugary frosted baked goods fresh from the ol’ Easy Bake.   Sure I had plastic play food, but this was the real thing! I could be completely self-sufficient in my room turned adult-free apartment with my fabulous pink oven.  I didn’t get an Easy Bake, but I’m still pretty certain that’s how it would have gone. ..

One word that is a surefire way to get me to click the “Share” button on nearly anyone’s vegan recipe?  (You can find those shared posts in the sidebar to the right.)  Let’s all say it together. PUMPKIN!  When I came to The Domestic Vegan’s recipe for vegan Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread, I took it one step further, ran straight to the bread machine, and made myself a loaf!

This is simply a fantastic bread recipe!  I’m sure I don’t even have to tell you how it makes the kitchen smell absolutely delicious while baking.  My loaf ended up with the perfect texture- soft, and fluffy with a nice bite, and yet dense enough to easily slice without it falling apart.  I made Jessica’s recipe exactly as written, including the 2 cups white flour and 3/4 cups whole wheat flour, except replacing the allspice and cloves with pumpkin pie spice.  I didn’t have allspice or cloves, and since they’re both in pumpkin pie spice, I figured it couldn’t hurt in such a small amount.  If you have a lonely bread machine, I highly recommend hopping over to The Domestic Vegan for this amazing bread recipe.

And do you know who else loves pumpkin raisin bread?  Apparently the bees!  I was just holding the plate to snap a photo and this guy decided to check out the terrain.

Do you make many blogger recipes or do you usually just stick to cookbook and family recipes you’re familiar with?

    I am SO happy you loved the recipe! Your loaf is gorgeous. I love the bee photo. 🙂

    I really need to make another loaf of this! It’s just perfect for this time of year. I think at some point I’m going to try replacing the pumpkin with sweet potato! Or maybe a mixture of both?

  2. Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote Bag is awesome.So numerous wallets – and not really these modest, useless pockets, either. All of the actual storage compartments tend to be a fantastic size and genuinely assist keep everything organized. The handles are a good length and fit nicely more than the shoulder; the handle straps also stay place on my shoulder, which is actually crucial as soon as you are holding a baby. The tote looks great, too. Not too fancy, but not as well casual. (I have it in black) The material is soft (can’t feel of a greater word) so it is uncomplicated to squeeze in to tight spaces – but yet it’s sturdy. I’ve a Fleurville Lexi tote and I love it, too, but that bag is actually type of rigid. I think that Skip*Hop may turn out to be my everyday bag. It is a bit substantial – so if you’re not in to significant bags this may perhaps be far better as an over-night diaper tote.
