Pumpkin, you can cook with it, make a pie with it, make malay delicacies with it, bake with it ....can do a lot with it. I like making bread with all type of health ingredients like pumpkin, beetroot, celery, carrot and a lot more. It is good for kids and old folks, if they do not take much vegetable in they diet. By blending this natural ingredient in they will get extra nutrition and dietary fibre.

**If you are using a bread maker then it is much more simple...just add all the above ingredients into the bread pan and press mix and knead mode. When the cycle is finish, you can shape the dough straight away.
~This is the bread pan that I used to make this bread loaf....这是我用来做这土司的模子~
~After rolled, place into the bread pan ready to proof for 40 minutes.....卷好的面团再做第二次发酵40分钟~
~After proof for 40 minutes, the size is double.....40分钟后发酵面团以变双倍~
~Top of the risen dough is smooth....表面光滑
5) Preheat oven for 170c, once the dough have doubled it size，bring it out and place on a clean working surface. Lightly press the dough to release air, flatten out to 1 inch thickness. Roll up tightly to form roulade. Place the dough into a greased loaf tin and allow to proof second time for another 40 minutes until size is doubled.
6) Cover the loaf tin with its lid and bake for 45 minutes or until done. Unmould the loaf and cool on wire rack.
5) 预热烤箱170度c, 当第一次发酵完成. 把面团轻轻压平,把气泡去了.再杆成1"厚. 再紧紧的卷起像瑞士卷. 再放进面包烤模里. 第二次发酵40分钟或面团发至双倍.
6) 发酵好了,把盖子盖上就可以送进烤箱, 烤45分钟. 土司烤好后要立刻脱模待冷.
