Inspiration comes in odd places, sometimes. For me, it mostly comes in the form of leftovers. I love getting whole pumpkins in winter to roast, but Sam isn’t such a fan of pumpkin, leaving me pretty much up to my neck in orange stuff, because there’s only so much roast pumpkin you can eat before you want to move on.
So what DO you do with leftover roasted pumpkin? Me, I like to mash it up, because then, it gets a second life as a whole bunch of things. This time, as my pumpkin bread!
This pumpkin bread is a simple variation on my basic white bread recipe that I also use to make Caramelised Garlic Bread, because I find that it’s such a fantastic soft white bread recipe that just works every single time. The pumpkin mash/puree makes a slightly denser bread, but I just love the light orange tinge that tints the dough, and the subtle sweet finish when eaten with a smear of butter and a sprinkle of salt!
