  • 1/3 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 ounce active dry yeast
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 17 ounces all-purpose flour, plus more as needed (approximately 4 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the water and yeast together until bubbly and then allow it to sit for 1 minute. Add the butter, sugar, pumpkin puree and eggs and whisk until just combined.
  • Attach the dough hook to the mixer. Stir the salt into the flour and then add them to the mixer on low speed.
  • Allow the dough to mix for approximately 5 minutes on low speed. It will be sticky. If it's not coming together, add up to 4 more tablespoons of flour, adding 1-2 tablespoons at a time. You can also put a small amount of vegetable oil on your hands to keep the dough from sticking to them.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased large bowl and cover. Allow to double in size, approximately 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degreesF and lightly grease 2 8-inch cake pans. Divide the dough into 10 equal sized balls and place 5 in each cake pan. Allow the dough to rise for another 25-30 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until fully cooked through. Serve warm.
