makes 4 {7-ounce} loaves

2 1/4 tsp dry active yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3 1/4 to 3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp melted butter, cooled
1 egg
Heavy cream

 Stir together the water & the yeast. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Whisk together the flour & the salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Crumble the brown sugar over the mixture & give it a good stir with the whisk. Add the pumpkin, the buttermilk, the butter, the egg & the yeast mixture. Mix on Low speed 1 minute with a dough hook. The dough will come together in a ball around the hook. Increase the speed to Medium & mix 5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball & place in a lightly greased bowl. Spray the dough surface with cooking spray & cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise in a draft-free spot for about 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Punch the dough down & divide it into 4 {8-ounce) pieces. Shape into loaves & place in 4 well greased 5x 3-inch pans. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in a draft free spot for about 1 hour or until an increase by a half their original size has been achieved. The dough should dome just over the lip of the pans.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Brush the cream over the top of the dough. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown & a thermometer registers between 190 & 200 degrees. Remove the bread from the oven & immediately remove them from the pans. Place on a wire rack. Cool completely. Use a serrated knife to slice into 1/3-inch thick pieces.
