For the pumpkin puree:

  • 300 g Hokkaido pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 Msp Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar

for the yeast dough:

  • 500 g Spelt flour
  • 1 packet Dry yeast
  • 80 g Brown sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 Pc. Egg
  • 100 ml Lukewarm water

For the filling:

  • 2 tbsp Melted butter
  • 45 g Brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinammon
  • 50 g Cranberries or raisins
  • 1 Pc. Large apple, finely diced


  • Remove the seeds and fibers from the pumpkin and cut into small cubes. Melt the butter and add the pumpkin cubes with nutmeg and brown sugar. Steam for approx. 10 - 15 minutes. Remove from heat and puree finely. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Mix the flour and dry yeast for the yeast dough. Add the egg, salt, sugar, water and the pumpkin puree. Knead into a smooth dough with your hands. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place or in a 50 degree oven for about 45 minutes until the dough has visibly enlarged.
  • Then knead the dough well again and roll it out into a large rectangle on a floured work surface. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, cranberries and apple.
  • Roll up the dough from the longer side. Cut snails approx. 3 cm wide from the roll with a sharp knife. Place them next to each other on a baking sheet lined with baking paper (leave a little space between them, as the snails will still separate during baking) and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees (or convection 180 degrees) for about 20 minutes.
  • As a variation, you can also replace 200 g of flour with wholemeal spelled flour.
