  • 7 ounces peeled red kuri squash
  • 1¾ ounces butter
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 0,9 ounce yeast
  • 3½ ounces quark 0.3%
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp fine salt
  • 1⅓ pounds plain flour

For brushing

  • beaten eggs


  • 16 pecan nuts (one per roll)



1. Place the pumpkin cubes in a saucepan filled with boiling water and cook for approx. 10 min., or until tender. Drain off the water and blend the pumpkin for approx. 30 sec. – into a thick pumpkin puree.

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the milk. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the yeast. Add the pumpkin puree and the other ingredients (reserve some of the flour for later).

3. Knead the dough well by hand or in a stand mixer for approx. 5 min. Cover the bowl, for example with the lid of a pot and let rise in a warm place for about an hour.

4. Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and knead thoroughly. Add the rest of the flour as needed.

5. Divide the dough into 16 pieces and shape into rolls. Flatten slightly, then make 6 cuts into the rolls.

6. Place the buns on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment and let them rise again for approx. 45 min.

7. Brush with egg and press a pecan into the middle of each roll. Bake the rolls in the middle of the oven for approx. 15 min. at 330°F (fan setting), then cool on a rack.
