October reminds me of three things: fresher air, the joy of treating myself to something delicious and invigorating, and squash. I have combined these three elements to create one truly delicious dessert – sweet swirls with chocolate filling and maple syrup icing. You don't taste the squash in the swirls, but it makes them wonderfully soft.

Yeast dough

In a bowl, mix the flour with all the other ingredients up to and including the yeast. Add the squash puree, milk, egg and butter, knead to form a soft, smooth dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1½ hrs. until doubled in size.


Place the chocolate, butter and sugar in a thin-sided bowl and suspend over a gently simmering bain-marie, ensuring that the bowl does not touch the water. Melt the chocolate and stir until smooth.

To shape the swirls

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle (approx. 35 × 45 cm). Spread the filling on top, leaving a border of approx. 1 cm all the way around. Roll up the dough from the long edge. Without exerting pressure, cut the dough into approx. 12 slices of equal thickness using a bread knife, place on a baking tray lined with baking paper, leave to rise at room temperature for a further 30 mins.

To bake

Approx. 20 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove, allow to cool slightly.


Mix the butter, cream cheese, icing sugar, maple syrup and vanilla sugar, continue to mix until you have a smooth icing. Brush the warm swirls with the icing, leave to cool.
