  • 220 gm pumpkin puree, cooled
  • 1.5 tsp active dry yeast
  • 160 ml water
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp favorite BBQ seasoning or 1 tsp of salt
  • 450 gm plain flour

  • Add the pumpkin puree to the yeast mixture and stir to fully incorporate.
  • Add the flour and salt/seasoning and stir until the mixture comes together.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth. Alternatively, mix for 5 minutes in a stand mixer.
  • Place the dough into a greased bowl and let rise for 90 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Once doubled, punch the excess air out of the dough and divide into 8 equal pieces.
  • Roll each one into a ball and pinch the bottom together. Take a long piece of string and find the halfway point.
  • Place the halfway point on top of the ball and flip the whole thing over.
  • Pull the two pieces of string together and cross them over to create a cross on the bottom of the ball.
  • Flip it over again and do the same thing until the ball is divided into 8 equal pieces.
  • Tie the string at the top and cut off any excess.

  • Cover the 8 rolls with cling film and let rise again for 30 minutes. The dough will puff out around the string and make pumpkin shapes.

  • Let them cool on a cooling rack before removing the string.
  • To remove the string, cut it and pull through the bread roll where baked over to prevent tearing.
