basic bread with pumpkin

my dear husband bought a massive pumpkin for carving, but what do you do with the pumpkin head after Halloween is over? I did not want to let it go to waste, so I grated some into one kind of pumpkin muffins, cooked the mash posted earlier, and still had mashed pumpkin left. In fact, I still have about half the pumpkin sitting in the fridge waiting to be used…
But the idea to just put some of the mashed pumpkin in a basic bread turned out really nice!

Here's what I did:
500g white bread flour
250g wholemeal spelt flour
3 tsp quick yeast
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3 tbsp oil
1 cup mashed pumpkin (or as required)
2 handful pumpkin seeds (optional)

Mix the flours with yeast, salt and sugar. Add the oil and pumpkin until a dough starts to form. Once you´ve got a nice workable dough, knead in the pumpkin seeds. Allow to rise, form into a bread and put into a greased bread pan or onto a greased baking sheet. Give it more time to rise while oven is heating up to 200 degrees, then bake for about 45 mins or until it sounds hollow when tapped underneath.
