Pumpkin - Nutella Rolls

August 31, 2017 by Sarah Moniri

The first cinnamon roll I've tried something in a mall and I liked it but my desserts need chocolate! So I took my  grandmas yeast dough recipe and added nutella inside the roll. My roommate loves pumpkin spice and we had a pumpkin left in the refrigerator so I thought: why not make a pumpkin nutella cream and sprinkle pumpkin spice on top? So, if you love cinnamon rolls, pumpkin spice and autumn this is the perfect recipe for you!

Pumpkin - Nutella Rolls

The dough:

  1. 250 gr./2 cups buttermilk 
  2. 80 gr./ 3/8 cup sugar
  3. 80 gr./ 3/8 cup butter
  4. 1X Egg
  5. 1X Cube fresh yeast (if you can not find fresh yeast, dry yeast works too!)
  6. 500 gr. / 4 1/2 cups flour
  7. A pinch of salt

The filling:

  1. 350 gr./ 1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée
  2. 3 tbsp. Nutella 
  3. Pumpkin Spice (3 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp ginger, 2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp allspice)



Heat up the buttermilk and mix it with yeast, butter, the egg, sugar and salt. Combine the flour with the dough and let it rise for at least one hour. 20-30 minutes at 375 Fahrenheit / 190 Celsius. The pumpkin softens in the oven and you can easily peel off your skin! Add the pumpkin pieces in a blender and mix it until it's smooth texture, add Nutella and blend again.


   Roll out the yeast dough and smear the pumpkin-nutella cream on it, sprinkle it as much pumpkin as you can on the cream and cut it into 8-10 even rolls.


Place it in a buttered pan and cover it with a kitchen towel for another 30 minutes. Bake them at 375 Fahrenheit / 190 Celsius and enjoy them with a cup of tea!
