For the Bread
2 1/4 tsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water, 110 degrees
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 cup milk, warmed to 110 degrees
2 Tbsp molasses
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp butter, softened
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 cup pumpkin puree
3 1/4 cups flour
For the filling
1 1/2 Tbsp butter, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
In the bowl of an electric mixer combine water, yeast and 1/2 tsp sugar. Whisk until yeast has dissolved and let rest 5 minutes.
Stir in milk, molasses, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, salt, softened butter, nutmeg, ginger, egg and pumpkin puree until well combine.
Slowly add flour and knead with a dough hook attachment until dough is smooth and elastic.
Transfer dough to an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until double, about 1 hour.
Butter an 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ in pan, set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
Punch the risen dough down and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a large rectangle, about 22″ x 8.” Brush with melted butter, coming within about 1/2″ of the edges. Sprinkle with cinnamon mixture, coming within about 1/2″ of the edges.
Roll dough up jelly roll style, starting with the short side. Place rolled dough in greased loaf pan and let rise in a warm place until doubled about 45 minutes.
Bake 375 degrees for 45 minutes, tent loaf with foil halfway through baking to prevent excessive browning. Allow to cool in pan 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
