These spiced pumpkin mini loaves were similar to carrot cake. Unlike some other quickbreads and mini loaves, they were very light. They were frosted with cinnamon cream cheese frosting.
Pumpkin is a really distinct seasonal flavour which is great for baking with. These cheesecakes are layered, with an Oreo base (peanut butter Oreos even!), plain cheesecake in the middle and spiced pumpkin cheesecake on top. I traced a spider web outline with white chocolate after baking for extra spookiness.
Half way between halloween (pumpkins) and summer (coconuts), this pie combines the two with Jamaican rum for good measure. A great pie to make on Pi day that contains fruits and nuts instead of chocolate.
A twist on regular oatmeal cookies due to the pumpkin. These are a good way to use up leftover pumpkin puree from other recipes. Makes 15 cookies.
Less than a month until Halloween means furiously cramming pumpkins into everything I bake. This light bread i speckled with raisins and has swirls of cream cheese running through.
Canned pumpkin isn’t the easiest thing to find in the UK, but Tesco sell it in the American imports section near the Lucky Charms.
