Add yeast to 1/2 cup warm water and let stand for 10 minutes.

In a large measuring cup or medium-sized saucepan, heat milk and butter to 135 degrees F. (1 1/2 minutes in a microwave or 4 minutes in a saucepan). Pour this liquid into a bowl, adding sugar, salt, canned pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and grated orange peel. Let this mixture cool to lukewarm. Add egg.

Knead until smooth and satiny, 10 minutes by hand, or 4 minutes in an electric mixer or food processor fitted with dough hook. Place in greased bowl, turning coat thoroughly. Cover with a damp towel and allow to rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour.
