Pumpkin Black Sesame Bread

Pumpkin Black Sesame Bread


The other day i bought a half pumpkin, and I use it to make this Pumpkin black sesame bread, pumpkin butter cake and steamed savourty pumpkin cake. I agreed pumpkin is a very versatile ingredient, we can use it for cooking or baking in many ways and methods.

I adapted this recipe from a baking book that i bought from the recent Shanghai trip..

Pumpkin Black Sesame Bread



Eventhough this is a direct method of making bread, the texture still maintain soft after keep it overnight. I like the black sesame paste very much, similar like peanut butter taste.

cookingvarieties said...

hi sonia, i wish i knew you a few months ago,when i called upon bloggers to post recipes on winter squashes..such as pumpkins.
the pumpkin bread looks very tasty and yummy, would love to try this out

Lite Home Bake said...

Very nice blend of colors! Makes the bread look so appetizing. I am tempted to try making a pumpkin bread, seen so many recipes and good comments about it but still contemplating because we never like the taste of pumpkin as a dish, wonder how it taste like in breads, like sweet potato bread?

Now Serving said...

that really looks awesome - I LOVE black sesame, its taste and flavor altho Indian (at least in the south) use it sparingly or only in certain recipes! Lovely bread :)

Li Shuan said...

Your bread looks great. I have never try black sesame paste before, must try one in the near future!

Mary said...

This is a lovely bread. I've never seen sesame paste used before. I would love to try this!

neyeeloh said...

Last time I bought half pumpkin, it took me forever to finish all.. phew.... But I like the natural color whenever using pumpkin ^_^

Jessie@小紅紅與大藍藍的小天地 said...

Sonia, you are so hardworking! Made 3 types of bread! Like all of them. I like pumpkin very much but my 16mths old daughter doesnt like mushy food, it is a good idea for me to try to make some pumpkin bread/buns & let her try.

Jessie@小紅紅與大藍藍的小天地 said...

Hi Sonia, it's me again. My "baby brain" syndrome is getting worse now because I dont know why & how I get this idea that you are from Singapore till I read the posts in Anncoo & you mentioned something that you can ask your hubby to bring something to Anncoo. Hahaha.Silly me!

Love the combination! The pumpkin bread itself is very nice and fluffy... the sesame paste is an extra bonus! All look wonderful together.

shanneyu said...

Hi Sonia,your pumpkin bread impress me alot. Im making this now according to your recipe...but I put 10g more water and it seems like not gonna rise. ==" by any chance to save it??

Lori said...

This takes pumpkin to a whole new level for me! I get so tired of my quick bread and muffins, but never have any other ideas. This is so great!

lihuan said...

Hi Sonia

i m learning how to hand-knead bread... tried a few times but failed :-(... your recipe looks so tempting. Can give me some tips on the kneading techniques? My dough usually very sticky and difficult to achieve 三光. Thanks
