Recipe: Pumpkin mixed fruits bread

I actually have no intention of writing a recipe for this (thus the lack of photos), but some of you requested, so here you go. :)

Pumpkin pre-dough:
200g pumpkin, peeled, steamed and smashed
35g bread flour
100ml water

1. Mix all the ingredients, cook on a sauce pan on low heat until the mixture thickens.
2. Let it cool completely. 

Main dough:
Pre dough
300g bread flour
30g brown sugar
mixed dried fruits (amount is up to your preference)
1 egg (reserve some for egg wash)
1 tsp instant yeast
150ml milk
30g oil/butter
pinch of salt
Icing glaze (dissolve 120g of icing sugar with 2/3 tbsp water

1. In a large bowl, combine all the above ingredients (except butter) and knead everything together until the dough is not sticky.
2. Add butter, knead until it forms an elastic dough.
3. Cover dough with a damp towel and let it proof for an hr.
4. Punch out the air and cover dough to rest for another 10 mins.
5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to rectangular. Spread mixed fruits all over and roll up like a swiss roll.
6. Join the ends of the roll, cover the roll generously with more mixed fruits, arrange on a greased tray.
7. Cover with a damp towel and leave to  proof for an hr.
8. Preheat oven to 190C.
9. Lightly brush all over with egg 
10. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 mins or till the bread is brown.
11.Remove bread from tray and cool on a wire rack.
12. When cooled, drizzle with icing glaze.

Of course this recipe goes out for pumpkin lovers, like me. *grins*
