I love the smells of fall. My kitchen is smelling so yummy. I have a pot of coffee on, fall candles burning and pumpkin bread in the oven. I fell in love with pumpkin bread last year. I had never been a huge fan of pumpkin but ordered a slice at Starbucks and fell deeply in love. I got tired of paying all that money for one slice of bread so I decided to make it myself. I know Andy got so tired of eating pumpkin bread. I made pumpkin loaves, loaves with nuts, loaves with chocolate chips, pumpkin muffin, ooey gooey pumpkin cake and pumpkin rolls. This year I am hooked on making desserts with pumpkin again. Sister and I made a pumpkin trifle that was out of this world (it is on our holiday menu for fall, you should order it). We also made a triple delight (millionaire pie) with pumpkin pudding. It was great too.
What are some of your favorite desserts with pumpkin?
I hope you will enjoy this recipe!
