Recipe: Whole Grain Pumpkin Bread

Posted Feb 23 2011 12:00am

On Sunday while Star took nap, I made a new bread ;)


Whole Grain Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients to put into the bread machine in this order:

  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp oil (I used coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 cups WW flour
  • 1 cup oat flour (oatmeal grounded + oat bran)
  • 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 2 tsp yeast

Once the dough is read, transfer it to a baking pan


use the microwave steam method (put a glass of water and microwave for 3 min at high, take out the glass and put the dough. The steam from the hot water creates a good environment for the fermentation.

30 min later… look how it has risen


bake at 375F for 30-35 min


It de-puffed a little bit


remove from the pan. let it cool and store at the freezer for 15 min before slicing it


The texture is like bread, not the pumpkin-bread-cake like texture which is cakey. It’s dense, a bit of chewy, a touch of pumpkin bread flavor and it’s WW!!! :D


The next morning our breakfast. Star had PB cookies with tea


I had toasted bread with multi-bean milk


love the color ;)


one with LC and the other with PB (I think I’ll make almond butter next time… PB is just not my thing :( )



Other eats: sauteed chinese greens with smoked pork belly and dry chili


Star’s lunch


I had another stir-fry (it’s my safe meal now! I am having one of these everyday ;) , just love love it!!!)


this has iceberg lettuce, mushrooms (I think I’m eating almost 5 pounds of mushrooms every week!!!), bamboo (obsessed! A tutorial soon), vegetarian chicken, green peas, sauteed with olive preserved olive leaf, soy sauce, brown sugar and white pepper (another obsession!)

served with a steam corn (all time obsession! ;) )


Okay, ladies, I’ll be posting more fashion and beauty related things in the future, because I’m reading a lot of fashion/beauty blogs lately and I feel inspired! ;) Yesterday I spent the whole afternoon reading/watching this sweet petite-girl ~~~ :)

Q1: What’s your must-have makeup item? Lipstick

Q2: Latest food obsession? Fresh bamboo
