Happy Friday! I’m headed up north to Cambridge, MA, to celebrate my sister’s birthday–keep an eye out next week for her cake!
Heading up to New England in the fall has me daydreaming about–what else–pumpkin! While I am not one of those people who needs everything I eat this time of year to be bright orange and pumpkin-flavored (still baffled by the pumpkin spice almond milk at Trader Joe’s…), I do enjoy my fair share of the seasonal favorite.
I don’t have a new pumpkin recipe for you today, but I have lots in my archives. Here are some of my favorites 😍
Buying canned pumpkin purée is certainly the easiest way to get it into your baked goods, but every once in a while, it’s fun to make your own! This tutorial starts with helping you find the right pumpkin, and then gives you a full-photo step-by-step look into the whole process.
By itself, pumpkin doesn’t have a very strong flavor–Pumpkin Pie Spice is actually what we’re all so in love with 😍 It’s all over store shelves this time of year, but I suggest making your own; it’s much more economical than buying those tiny jars, and you can control the flavor. My favorite blend is souped up with cardamom and black pepper. It sounds weird, but don’t knock it ’till you try it!
We may be two months away from Thanksgiving, but it’s never too early to get your Pumpkin Pie fix! My recipe is lighter than most, thanks to the addition of whipped egg whites.
Start your day with pumpkin spice! These soft-in-the-center, nubbly-at-the-edges Pumpkin Scones are a great weekend breakfast option.
As far as weekday breakfasts go, these Pumpkin Oat Muffins can’t be beat! They’re super soft, full of flavor, and an easy grab-and-go option. Did I mention they have chocolate in them?!
I posted a recipe for classic Oatmeal Creme Pies a few weeks ago, but these pumpkin-spiced Little Debbie knock-offs were one of my first posts ever 😮 They’ve got the soft cookies and marshmallow filling you love, and plenty of pumpkin flavor!
Have you made this cake yet? I know I only posted it last week, but I love it and can’t wait to hear what you think! It’s super flavorful, stays soft for days, and beyond that, it just looks pretty.
Are you into pumpkin? Let me know in the comments!
Have a great weekend.
