I have wanted to join a bread blog group for a long time now. Finally I found it. Yay!
This is my first post for the Bread Bakers group. The theme for the month is Fall Breads. Though there is no Fall from where I come from, I stay in a country where the entire year is Pumpkin time. I get such amazing pumpkins in Malaysia here that I have fallen in love with it. It was usually once a month fare when we were in India but here it’s a weekly affair.
I found this amazing pumpkin dinner roll recipe that I just had to make and it did turn out wonderful too!
So here goes –
WHAT WE NEED
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
1 cup milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm (see note)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
40 grams (3 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup /110 grams pumpkin puree (see note)
2 large eggs, divided
1 tsp salt
480 grams (3 3/4 cups) all-purpose flour
8-10 halved walnuts pieces
52 gms unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
WHAT TO DO
For the bread rolls
- Mix the yeast, milk, sugar, butter, pumpkin, one egg, and salt until well combined.
- Add the flour in three installments and knead on medium-low speed in a hand mixer or stand mixer until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
- Turn off the mixer and let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
- Knead the dough for another 5 minutes until the dough is soft and smooth.
- If it seems too sticky, add more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. ( I added 3 tbsp flour)
- Transfer the dough to a large greased bowl and cover the bowl with a wet napkin
- Let the dough rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes
- Punch the dough down and turn it out onto a lightly floured counter top
- Divide the dough into 18 equal pieces and shape into balls.
- Press the balls down lightly with the palm of your hand
- Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Beat the remaining egg with 2 teaspoons of water and brush all over the rolls.
- Insert a halved walnut in the centre of each roll to look like a stem of a mini pumpkin
- Bake the rolls for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Enjoy it warm with cinnamon butter
- Beat the butter until pale in color.
- Add the powdered sugar, honey, and cinnamon and beat until well combined, light, and fluffy.
- Serve immediately or store, covered, in the fridge for up to 1 week.
- Bring to room temperature before serving.
- Scalded milk is hot milk which does not stick to the bottom of the pan and does not form a film on top. So you need to heat the milk on medium heat and keep stirring it every 20-30 seconds. Switch of the gas when small bubbles start forming at the edges. Let it cool to lukewarm and then use it for this recipe.
- You can either use fresh or canned pumpkin purée. I use fresh purée.
