Baking yeast bread is something I really enjoy doing, and even more so this year. Where I live, there is plenty of flour and yeast now, so I can continue this relaxing and tasty hobby of mine. I bake all of our bread; whether it's sandwich bread, hamburger buns, or cinnamon rolls. No more store-bought bread or buns for us anymore!
Zorra from the blog Kochtopf organizes World Bread Day every year. I love baking with pumpkin so for this year's entry I baked two loaves of Pumpkin Yeast Bread, heavily adapted from the King Arthur Baking Company.

This bread is easy to make, and is really soft and fluffy. What I also loved is that this recipe makes two loaves at the same time. I like to store my bread in the freezer. First I slice the whole loaf and then I put the sliced bread in a Ziploc bag, and into the freezer it goes. When you need bread, you only take out what you need, and either let it thaw it out on the counter, or put it in the toaster.
With this bread, you have the option to add warm spices like ginger and cardamom. I decided to leave those out and instead, add walnuts to one loaf for my husband, and add a cinnamon swirl to one half of my loaf. This worked out great!
