When I decided to make this cake, it took less time to make the batter than it took to preheat the oven. You use a whisk to make it, not a mixer, which means you can whip it up in little time and the cleanup is very easy. It’s a delicious, dense cake – almost like a Blondie.Pin It
This cake has all the wonderful flavors of fall — cinnamon, pumpkin, walnuts — and is make with honey instead of refined sugar. Top it with a light whipped cream, or Lick-the-Bowl-Good-Cream Cheese Frosting.Pin It
These cupcakes were so much fun to make. I just put them together with things I had in my pantry.Pin It
I made this for Gregg’s birthday this year. He took it to work with him, and said it didn’t last six minutes before it was all gone. I know the filling tasted amazing – Gregg said the whole thing was absolutely wonderful.Pin It
One Sunday morning, getting ready for church, about 50 minutes before we had to leave, I realized suddenly that I had to bring breakfast to Sunday School. In a panic, I did a quick scan of my baking cupboard and spotted a can of pumpkin. My mind was whirling — what could I do? Muffins? No time to fill muffin cups. Cake! I could do a coffee cake. So…here it is. Pumpkin coffee cake. The first time I made it, I had it in the oven no less than seven minutes after deciding what to make. Thankfully, it turned out well and I made it, slower and with pictures, the next morning.Pin It
I worked a bake sale last summer and everyone asked for pumpkin rolls. I had never heard of them before, so I asked my readers for recipes. My friend Stacy posted this one. It was so much easier than I anticipated. And the result was simply divine. I took them as dessert feeding the group of volunteers with which I work Tuesday nights, and they were inhaled. A friend there loves pumpkin rolls- they are her dessert of choice over all others – and she said these were some of the best she had ever made. I used whole wheat flour for the cake. The filling was so light and creamy. It was hard to resist just sitting down with a spoon and eating it straight out of the bowl.Pin It
If a watched pot never boils, does a watched cake ever bake?
I derived this recipe from Food Network’s Ina Garten. It tastes just like summertime to me. It is also beautiful when it’s sliced. It has become a summer staple in our house.Pin It
