Note: To assure Kosher status prepare recipe to meet Kosher guidelines. 

  • 1/2 cup
    warm water (100°-110°)
  • egg yolk (reserve the white)
  • 1/4 cup
    egg substitute
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon
    canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup
    canned pumpkin
  • 2 teaspoons
    pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups
    whole-wheat flour
  1. Add ingredients to bread machine pan in order recommended by manufacturer.
  2. Set bread machine to DOUGH cycle (1 hour, 40 minutes) and press START. After 5 minutes, if the dough appears too stiff, add a tablespoon of low-fat milk or water.
  3.  When dough is ready, divide into three equal sections and roll each into a rope about 18 inches long. Line the ropes up, side by side, on a nonstick jellyroll pan coated with canola cooking spray. Squeeze the three rope ends together at one end. Braid the ropes, then squeeze the other ends together, too.
  4.  Preheat oven to 350°F. Set pan near the oven while it is preheating to help the bread rise (cover the bread with a kitchen towel if desired). While waiting, whisk the egg white with 2 teaspoons water.
  5. When bread is doubled in size (about 1 hour), gently brush the egg white on top of the bread and bake until golden brown (40-50 minutes). Let cool about 5 minutes before slicing with serrated knife.
