These Pumpkin Rolls are a real delight. They are soft and super easy to make using your Thermomix. They make the perfect roll as a dipping tool for soups.
Pumpkin is such a versatile vegetable. In our garden in Germany we used to grow pumpkins every year and my grandma made this super delicious pumpkin pickle. I always used to sneak into her cupboard and take a jar. Usually I could eat it all in one go because it was so perfectly sweet and savoury at the same time.
These pumpkin bread rolls combine the love of two things for me: pumpkin and bread. It is such an easy recipe to follow and there is not much that can go wrong. You have the choice to either make individual buns or make a giant tear and share bread with individual buns stuck together. I personally prefer that variation because of the soft edges on each bread roll in the centre.
When you are making the dough, there is the possibility that it looks either a little dry or a little wet, just have some milk and flour ready as it is strongly dependant on the pumpkin you've used. Some give more moisture whereas others give less.
Chop the butternut squash or pumpkin into small pieces. Place in the simmering basket. Add the water to the mixing bowl and cook 25 Min. / 100°C / Speed 1. Drain the water and transfer the pumpkin into the mixing bowl. Blitz 20 Sec. / Speed 10. Pour into a small bowl and set aside to cool. You can also put it in the fridge to cool.
