Here's what you need...
2 cups Whole wheat flour
5 1/2 cups White flour
2 cups of quick-cooking oats
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon of active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups of warm water
1 cup of canned pumpkin
1/3 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Prepare the active dry yeast, by mixing it with the 1 1/2 cups of water and 2 teaspoons of sugar.
1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, oats, brown sugar, pumpkin, applesauce and oil just until moistened. Add eggs; beat until smooth.Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a firm dough. I like to mix the dough mixture into my kitchen Aid using my dough attachment.
2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning one to grease the top. Cover with tea towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
3.Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into an 18 inch
by 9 inch rectangle; brush with butter to within 1/2 inch of edges. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seam to seal.
4. Place seam side down in two greased 9-inch x 5inch. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire rack.
