Apple - Swirled Pumpkin Yeast Bread #SundaySupper

Well, Fall is here. Amidst the collective grumblings of parents, kids and kid-like adults, this beautiful season is beginning to lend its colours and flavours to the neighbourhood and table. I recently picked up a few of my favourite Winter squash - delicata - at the farmers market and can't wait for the crops of crispy local apples to start coming in. With luck, we'lleven have a chance to go picking again this year, after last year's harvest was wiped out by the previous Winter's ice storm.

Fall is also the opportunity to embrace the warmth and comfort of the baker's kitchen again, after avoiding any significant prolonged sources of heat for the past few months. I love diving headfirst into the brisk temperatures with pies, muffins and loaves - and this year there's nothing more Autumnal than this spicy-sweet yeast bread! I started with a pumpkin-packed whole wheat dough laced with warm spices, then rolled a ribbon of luxurious, unsweetened apple butter inside. The apple butter keeps the bread moist and tender for days on end, and is a fantastic addition to breakfast either toasted (with cultured butter or cream cheese!) or straight up. I've been enjoying it so much that I actually need to procure some more apples now - I have more Fall treats to try!

Apple - Swirled Pumpkin Yeast Bread
Makes one loaf, 16 slices
¼ cup maple sugar
2 tsp instant yeast
2 ½ cups whole wheat bread flour
2 tbsp chickpea flour
¾ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
½ tbsp pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup unsweetened vanilla soy milk (I used Westsoy®)
1 cup canned pumpkin
¼ cup unsweetened apple butter
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine sugar, yeast, flours, salt and spice.
  2. Combine the soy milk and pumpkin in a bowl and microwave until lukewarm, then add to the mixer.
  3. Knead with the dough hook for 10 minutes, until soft but not sticky.
  4. Cover and let rest 45 minutes.
  5. Press dough into a rectangle and spread with an even layer of apple butter, leaving 1” space on one “short” end.
  6. Starting from the filled end, roll up into a loaf and place in a greased 9" x 5" loaf pan.
  7. Cover lightly with greased plastic wrap and let rise 45 minutes.
  8. Preheat your oven to 350°F and bake loaf for 45 to 50 minutes - or until the center reads 190°F when measured with an instant-read thermometer.
  9. Remove from the oven and remove from the pan immediately.
  10. Cool before slicing.
