The pumpkin purée gives this loaf a rich golden crumb, a soft crust and a beautifully moist light texture, as well as a delightfully sweet-savoury flavour. It is worth noting that corn meal is sometimes known as maize meal.
Mash the pumpkin and put it in the bread machine pan. Add the buttermilk, water and oil. If the instructions for your machine specify that the easy bake dried yeast is to be placed in the pan first, reverse the order in which you add the liquid mixture and dry ingredients.
