I love the smell of bread. It makes the entire house smell so good and I can’t resist freshly baked bread! Took me a while but this is my basic bread recipe…
3 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tsp instant yeast
4 tablespoons butter (melted)
1 cup warm milk
For this particular recipe you will need 1/3 cup pumpkin purée.
Add all dry ingredients to a bowl, make a well and pour melted butter and milk. Combine and knead mixture until dough leaves edges of the bowl. Keep about 1/4 cup all purpose flour close to sprinkle on mixture if it’s too sticky but it shouldn’t be.
Let sit for 1hr in a warm place or until dough doubles in size. Select a bread pan for your dough, grease and flour pan and set aside. Once the dough has doubled in size, place on counter and roll flat about 1/2 inch think using a rolling pin.
Roll dough into a log and place in greased pan. Allow dough to rise again, should take roughly 30-45mins. Preheat oven to 375F.
Bake for 30mins or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Cut and serve!
