Cinnamon Glaze:


  • Add the milk to a small saucepan. Heat until just warm (105-120 degrees F). In a large bowl, combine the warm milk and yeast. Stir to dissolve. Set aside for about 10 minutes.
  • To the milk and yeast mixture, add 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 3 tablespoons melted butter, sugar, egg yolk, and salt. Beat with a mixer on medium until just combined. Add half of the flour. Beat on low for about 30 seconds. Scrape the bowl as needed. Beat for 3 minutes on medium. Then stir in the remaining flour.
  • Shape the dough into a ball; then place in a greased bowl. Cover with a tea towel and let rise in a warm place for about 50 minutes. The dough should double in size.
  • Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  • Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out into a 20x12-inch rectangle.
  • In a medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 3 tablespoons melted butter, cinnamon, kosher salt, nutmeg, and ground cloves. Spread this over the dough. Sprinkle evenly with the filling topping of brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Cut the dough into five 12x4-inch strips. Then, stack the strips together.
  • Cut them into five 5x2.5-inch pieces. Transfer the stacks to your prepared loaf pan. Let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes or until it about doubled in size.
  • While the loaf rises, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown. (If needed, you can loosely cover the bread with a piece of foil to prevent over-browning.) Cool for about 15 minutes; then remove from the pan.
  • In the meantime, prepare your cinnamon glaze by whisking to the powdered sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Add as much milk as needed, one tablespoon at a time, to create a glaze that can be drizzled.
  • Transfer the loaf to a serving dish, and drizzle with the prepared glaze.
