Spice up your babka with some pumpkin spice and make all your fall dreams come true


12 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, dough thawed to room temperature
4 Tbsp butter, softened
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
¾ Cup brown sugar
¼ Cup pumpkin puree


  1. Combine rolls and roll out on a sprayed surface to a 18×10 inch rectangle. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rest.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and cream together with a fork to get out all the lumps.
  3. Remove plastic wrap and spread mixture evenly over the dough.
  4. Roll up the dough starting at the 18 inch side creating a long rope. Cut the rope in half lengthwise and twist both halves 3 times around.
  5. Wrap the two twisted halves around each other and form into a circle wreath. If desired, place in a sprayed cast iron skillet or a 9 inch cake pan. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise 30 minutes to one hour or until doubled in size.
  6. Bake at 350ºF for 35-45 minutes.

    This looks wonderful! do you think i could assemble it and freeze it to bake later?

      Once the dough is thawed you cannot refreeze it or the yeast will be damaged. Try assembling and baking and then freezing and rewarming when you want to serve it. Hope that helps you.

    COULD THIS BE MADE WITH SOMETHING LIKE SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE DIP? I’m looking for something that has twisted dough on the sides and bottom of the pan and dip in the center, like a large bread bowl.

    My freezer door was quite clised and I had an ENTIRE package of frozen white bread,(5 loaves) defrost.
    Any ideas??
    Some of the reci req the rolls. What is the weight, as i could whegh chunks of defro dough and make several.

      It is best not to put the rolls in the freezer door. You could divide the dough into the 5 loaves and bake it as the package directs. Or our Dinner Rolls are 1.3 ounces or 38 grams. Our larger rolls are 2 ounces or 51 grams. Hope that helps!
