It's finally Autumn in North Carolina! Can I get a "hallelujah"? I know that some of y'all have been enjoying Fall for awhile now, but our summer just hung on and on this year. And then of course Hurricane Matthew hit and made things interesting, but not fallish.
Well. Now. We're finally enjoying cooler temperatures, which have me in the mood to do some baking! Look what I made this weekend:
Aren't those the most beautiful muffins you've ever seen? One of my birthday gifts was a bag full of pumpkin goodies, and the Nordic Ware pan was my favorite thing. Click here for the recipe I used to make the pumpkin muffins--absolutely delicious!
In case you're in the mood for some Autumn baking, I want to share my favorite recipes for this time of year.
First is my pumpkin bread. I promise it's the very best I've ever tasted--and in 53 years, I've tasted a lot.
For a little sweeter treat, try this pumpkin cake. With its decadent cream cheese frosting, it's always a hit.
Apples are plentiful and delicious this time of year. There are lots of great apple pie recipes, but here's one for apple cake. It's amazing!
And if you want a scrumptious accompaniment to any of these baked goods but don't want to make frosting, try this cream cheese glaze. It's a breeze to whip up in the food processor--quick and simple and so tasty.
These recipes have stood the test of time and lots of taste-testing in our family. I hope you love them as much as we do!
Do you have a favorite Fall baked good? Please share!
