- In a large bowl or food processor, dissolve yeast in water.
- Add honey, margarine, salt, dry milk, pumpkin, spices.
- Beat well to blend, then gradually beat in about 4 cups of the combined flours to make a stiff dough.
- Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead until smooth about 15 to 20 minutes, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking.
- Turn dough over in a bowl coated with nonstick spray, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (1½ - 2 hours) punch down dough, knead briefly on a lightly floured board to release air.
