How We Roll

Lots and lots of sweet pumpkin sheet cakes…cream cheese frosting… [on the Ohs and a little for me on a spoon!]

IMG_8678-2Blog

and…powdered sugar.

The Oh factory was workin’ hard! Everything in here is made from scratch -

In other bakery news…

Matt made some fabulous sourdough bread – the baking needs a little tweaking, but the bread tastes amazing!

And ladies and gentlemen, we have nut butter back in stock!

We both worked late – Matt making Ohs and me closing down the registers – and came home to want a very simple dinner.

Leftover casserole from last night… LOVING the cornbread topper!! So crispy.

Along with what I’d deem a hybrid of scrambled eggs and fried rice. Tomatoes, broccoli, pepper and mushroom sautéed with 2 eggs, cheese and Dr. Pete’s Praline Mustard Glaze and Garlic Chili Sauce. It was quite the dish!!

Speaking of pumpkin, Matt’s pumpkin beer is being kegged as I type! And oh the irony of going to sip his “moonshine” during the third episode of Prohibition!

I’ve heard that it’s illegal to send EtOH via postal services…how willing are you to break the law so I can sample this brew?

Yup, I definitely could never work in a bakery. Those pumpkin rolls wouldn’t make it out of the kitchen without bites in them ;)

Those pumpkin rolls look divine. Are they available at other Great Harvest locations, or are they specific to your store? Wondering if I can find them near me… :)

18 KathEats October 13, 2011 at 9:06 pm

Every store is different, so it depends. But lots do have them

The Dr. Pete’s Praline Mustard Glaze sounds wonderful. But the rolls, that pumpkin and that frosting or filling…oh, heaven right there. I would love to sample one of those bad boys!

Great pictures from the bakery of all those yummy pumpkin rolls. I am impressed you’re making sourdough, it’s so tough to get right. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, it seems everything you two do at the bakery is top notch.

Kath, it was so nice to see you when my friends and I stopped by the bakery today :) The samples were delicious, especially the pumpkin cream cheese spread! And thanks to Matt for making the Pumpkin Oh for us right on the spot! My friends had never been to GH before, but now they are in love as much as I am and were super impressed with the awesome service. The Pumpkin Oh is SO good, and I can’t wait to dig into the carrot muffin for breakfast tomorrow morning!! I’ll definitely be back soon :)

On the East Coast? Where do you live?

I’m in Central NJ. Do you know of any new GH opening up in this area?

That first set of photos is just cruel! Though I’m making cake pops for an event next week – pumpkin cake, cream cheese icing, dark chocolate dip, fall sprinkles – and I’ll just have to console myself with the fact that mine are cuter :)

When I was growing up, all the neighbors would do a cookie exchange for Christmas. But my next-door neighbor would always make a pumpkin roll for each of us- it looked just like yours! Obviously, it was always my favorite. :)

Even though I stuffed myself silly with pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving last weekend, it hasn’t spoiled my appetite for pumpkin. These look amazing!

I’m not usually a pumpkin roll kinda gal, but oh my word these look delicious! Especially with that lovely dusting of super fine powdered sugar. Yum! Send some up to the New England area, please? ;)

Reply

62 susan October 14, 2011 at 7:34 am

Wow – they look soooo wonderful! I guess it’s a good thing we don’t have a bakery like yours around here! Truly though, I really wish we did. The breads look amazing and good for you at the same time – which not all bread is like that (many healthy breads just don’t taste good)! Come open up a bakery here and visit the wine country and other great food places out this way at the same time – I’ll give you a tour! We could eat our way through Sonoma County.

love the simple dinners you come up with when you’re exhausted — it’s all about the creativity! We might need to start making Oh’s at our GH but they look like so much work. Is it as much as it seems?

Yes :mrgreen:

Love that I found you via Denise – my husband Bob kept suggesting sourdough bread (his fave) and I blogged about the shop after a delicious delivery to the Needle Lady! Great writing Kath! Would so enjoy a sheblogs meeting soon!!

Wonderful! Sourdough should be debuting next week!

Your dinner side looks to me like a de-constructed egg foo yung… my hub’s go-to choice for chinese…and it looks delish!
BTW, finally opened my bag of cville cluster, went on top of my oatmeal this morning… sooooo good! thanks to you and Matt for making it available to us, I know shipping is so.much.work!

I love pumpkin rolls – I am always amazed at how thin the sheet cake must be in order to successfully roll! It seems so delicate but then rolls right up!

UVA wants these! I’m hosting an event for the class of 2015 on November 5th, and we’re expecting 500 attendees. Would Great Harvest like to supply any items?

Reply

73 KathEats October 14, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Do you mean donate them? We might be able to – send me an email. Doubt we could do pumpkin ohs because they are super expensive and labor intensive, but we could probably do bread

Great pics of making that bread, it looks so good!

I love making rolls at home, but at the bakery they were a pain. These look delicious though. What do you use for fats in the bakery? Mine used transfat margarine and shortening YUCK

Reply

77 KathEats October 14, 2011 at 8:58 pm

No shortening at our place! Cream cheese, sugar and the like
