Fall is in the air, ok some days it is. So with the drop in temps I have been craving to get some Pumpkin recipes going! I tried the new Platinum yeast from Red Star. I have to say it worked wonderful in my pumpkin bread recipe!! Here it is …

.5/8 cup warm water
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup dry coffee creamer (hazelnut works awesome)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

Place ingredients in bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Select basic setting. Start.
To bake bread in oven: select dough or manual cycle. Once cycle is complete, shape dough and place in a greased loaf pan. Allow to rise in a warm spot until doubled in size. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the center of the loaf reads 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
