Yummy Pumpkin Goodies

In Uncategorized on October 15, 2010 at 9:17 pm

Ahhhh, Fall.  It’s my favorite season.  It’s crisp, the leaves are changing and  there’s a magical feeling in the air.  I love making pumpkin goodies to kick off the season. My favorite recipe is Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.  It is perfection.  Moist.  Rich and chocolate.  Delicious.  I just love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate.

And although I love CCPB, I decided to mix it up this year.  Today I made Pumpkin Chiffon Cake.  I found the recipe in the magazine, Every Day with Rachel Ray.  First impressions, it looked pretty easy to make and it seemed like it would have a nice, light texture.  Once it was cooled and cut, I found it was a lot more dense than I thought it’d be, and didn’t have the strong, pumpkin flavor that I thought it would.  Overall, pretty good.  I will make it again, with a few changes.

To continue with the pumpkin theme, I’m going to make Pumpkin Scones with a spiced glaze.  (the link is below.) I’ll either make these tonight or tomorrow.  I’ve never made scones before, so I think it’ll be fun.  I love the appeal of scones, part muffin and part biscuit.  Delicious.  (http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2010/02/19/pumpkin-scones-spiced-glaze/)

I love pumpkin, can’t you tell?
