Pumpkin Yeast Bread in a Jar: easy and aromatic pumpkin bread that can be preserved for later. Great homemade gift idea for holidays for your loved ones!
Here is something you don’t want to miss this autumn: pumpkin yeast bread baked in a jar. Sounds good? What is even better is that you can preserve it for later and enjoy it when the pumpkin season is over! It’s a nice idea of a self made gift for holidays for someone who likes pumpkin bread. And who doesn’t? You can also ship it to your loved ones who are far away.
I never can get enough of pumpkin bread. I’ve made it so many times this autumn. We usually have it for breakfast or brunch with butter, jam, Nutella or pumpkin butter. It’s so addictive and so easy to make that it can surely be your go-to pumpkin bread recipe, even if you are not going to preserve it but eat it fresh from the oven! It smells wonderful and it looks lovely. If you don’t intend to preserve them, you can put a bit more of dough in every jar so that they look like mushrooms! Isn’t it cool?
If you want to preserve your bread, you just have to put less dough into jars because it will double in size after baking. Don’t worry if your breads are taller than your jars, you can just cut off the excess and easily seal them. To preserve your jars, sterilize them before using (boil jars and lids for 15 minutes) and once again after baking, when they cool down (boil closed and sealed jars for 30 minutes). This way you can store them in a cool place for several weeks and in the freezer for even longer. It’s a safe and trustful method, as it prevents the growth of harmful bacteria that can grow in your jars if stored at room temperature. However, you can also store your bread unsealed for up to a week at room temperature. To prevent drying, put it in a plastic bag. The recipe I use is very simple and it doesn’t require extended baking experience. I used pumpkin seeds but you can feel free to experiment with other seeds or nuts. You can also make it vegan by substituting coconut oil for butter. So, here you go: pumpkin yeast bread in a jar.
