Pumpkin dinner rolls reinvented

Pumpkin dinner rolls reinvented

Did I ever mentioned you that I love bread and pumpkin? Oh, yes I did, here and here . Well, I had some leftover pumpkin from Halloween, half of it cubed and stored in the freezer and the rest baked in the oven and pureed for my pumpkin pie. I baked a bit  more pumpkin that I’ve needed and I’ve ended up with 2 cups of leftover pumpkin puree.

So I have decided to make something because I hate wasting food. While chatting with my fellow bloggers Valbona (aka bonbon taste) and Ejona (aka Mandarina) I thought to bake some pumpkin rolls, at 10PM ☺.

Taking into consideration the late hour, I decided just to mix up the dough, cover it with cling film and shape & bake it in the morning. The result? Just delicious and ready  for a healthy homemade breakfast.

Ingredients
  • • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • • 1 tsp. grounded clove
  • • 1 tsp. grounded ginger
  • • few drops of orange essence
  • • 1 egg
  • • 1/2 cup milk
  • • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • • 2 tsp. dried yeast
  • • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • • 1/3 cup barley flour
  • • 2/3 cup fine semola
  • • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • • 1 tsp. salt
  • • 2 tbsp. melted butter for brushing
Directions
  • Step 1 I have used my bread machine to mix the dough and I have  put my ingredients in it as listed. Using the dough cycle I let the machine knead and turned it off just as it started the proofing setting. I covered the bowl with tight cling film and let the dough rise overnight
  • Step 2 Alternatively, if you don’t have a bread machine, knead the dough by hand or standing mixer. The dough will be sticky. Do not add flour
  • Step 3 Knead the dough for about 7 minutes to help gluten form. Put the dough in a large container and cover it tightly with cling film and let it rise overnight. It will triplicate its volume and the cling film will prevent it from spilling
  • Step 4 The next morning, flour generously the counter top and knead the dough just a few times
  • Step 5 Preheat the oven to 190 C
  • Step 6 Divide the dough in 16 equal pieces and shape them to form small balls. Make 6 or 7 cuts along the rolls as in the picture and let them rise for about 3-4 minutes, just the time to melt the butter
  • Step 7 Bake the rolls in two batches for about 10 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Brush with butter as soon as you take them out of the oven
  • Step 8 Serve while still hot with some good quality butter and jam
