We Bake Gourmet:Orange Pumpkin Cloverleafs



This week has been exhilarating to say the least. I have a lot on plate and my mind is racing with thoughts and ideas. Thanks for all the support regarding the television appearance. This is last of my bread posts for the We Bake Gourmet series. I have to say it was fun to participate with my fellow bakers. I wish a lot the recipes weren't rolls, but now that I'm finished with this I cant wait to tackle a bread book I purchased a while back. Reading my other bakers reviews of this recipe didn't turn me off. I knew it was going to be a pretty bread in hue, but rather bland in flavor. To rectify that I made some minor changes. When I think of flavor combos of orange and pumpkin, my mind says why not add some cinnamon or nutmeg. And better yet, why not serve it with a nice honey butter.


These little changes brought out a wonderful flavor in these cloverleaf rolls. I used about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon freshly ground in my spice grinder. You can find the recipe for these rolls here.

These look beautiful and this wasn't the best post for me to read because I'm HUNGRY! ;-) (And dinner is still a few hours away).

I hope you're feeling better.
