Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls—Tuesdays With Dorie—Baking With Julia Rewind

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls 10-29-12

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Roll, adapted from Baking With Julia’s Cranberry Walnut Pumpkin Loaves

Today for Tuesdays With Dorie, we get to do a rewind recipe (one that we might have missed that has already been done by the group).  The one I’m sharing with you today was just made the first week in October.  I didn’t realize then until the Monday before that TWD post was due that the recipe took some time with an overnight stint in the fridge and then another six hours on the counter the next day, so I wasn’t able to get it made in time.  It worked perfect that this month has five Tuesdays and with the extra one, the group decided to make this a rewind week.  I didn’t want to miss the pumpkin loaves, which are a yeast bread, but also made with pumpkin puree' and delicious fall spices.

I started the dough, but instead of adding the suggested walnuts, raisins and fresh cranberries, I decided to use mini chocolate chips.  The recipe really is not difficult at all, but included many steps.  I like that the mixer did the 15 minute kneading session and the refrigerator did all the chillin’.  After the chilled dough sat on the counter for my busy morning hours yesterday, I decided when I was ready to finish the loaves to only make one of the small loaves.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip BreadIt rose beautifully and baked up perfectly.  With the remaining dough, you might have already guessed, I decided to make cinnamon rolls!  I rolled out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness, spread it with some softened butter, then liberally sprinkled on brown sugar and cinnamon and a few more chocolate chips.  Rolled up the dough, sliced it in to 10 rolls and they did their rise time.  I have to say, they baked up beautifully as well.  This was a great dough/recipe!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls 10-29-12The rolls would have been just fine as they were, but of course, I had to put icing on them.  I just happened to already have some orange-tinted icing leftover from something else, so I thinned it out just a little and drizzled it over the rolls.

So smart to make some cinnamon rolls with the dough. I really enjoy chocolate in pumpkin baked goods so that was a good call in my book. Both look fabulous!

awesome! I think all raisins should be replaced with chocolate chips, it would make the world a better place.

Those cinnamon rolls look like a little slice of heaven! I'm definitely going to have to give that a try!

This dough is just perfect for cinnamon rolls! You are giving me a great idea :) Chocolate and pumpkin is another favorite of mine.

Love the idea of using the rest of the dough for rolls. They look really good. I like using up all my leftover things too :)

Your cinnamon rolls looks delicious! I was thinking cinnamon rolls as well for the next time I make this recipe. The texture of this dough reminds me of the cinnamon rolls from America's Test Kitchen.

Oh goodness. Maybe I have one please?? This looks and sounds so wonderful now...after a long day trick-or-treating with the kiddos! Good you didn't miss the even. How fun it is to make/cook along with a group. :)

Having recently made some pumpkin cinnamon rolls myself, I'd say you made a really good choice. And I see you also added your signature chocolate touch.
