pumpkin rolls with olive oil

.. actu­al­ly, we want­ed to start the week­end with a day at the sea­side. After a storm, you can find great things on the beach and after many days at work and many peo­ple and cars in the city, it’s nice to breathe fresh sea air for a day. So I baked some rolls the day before for our trip. But now the hur­ri­cane “Zeynep” has been announced. And it’s prob­a­bly bet­ter to stay at home. Now I have buns and time for the blog.

The first time I baked them with wal­nuts, oat­meal and rose­mary. Now, for the pic­nic, they’re clean, just with the pump­kin puree. I used Hokkai­do pump­kin with the skin on. It makes a great colour and con­sis­ten­cy. Either boil the pump­kin cubes in a lit­tle water until soft or cut the seed­ed pump­kin into equal-sized cubes, spread them out on a bak­ing tray lined with bak­ing paper and bake them in the oven for about 20 min­utes (at 180 degrees con­vec­tion). Then fine­ly mash the cooked pump­kin or mash it with a pota­to mash­er. If a few small orange pieces remain, that’s no problem.

If you want to eat them the next day, you can bake the rolls again briefly on or in the toast­er. You can top them sweet or hearty. Let’s see, maybe the hur­ri­cane sea­son is over on Sun­day and we can go to the water again. Have a nice week­end and write me if you give the recipe a try.
