I have an entire board on Pinterest that links me to delicious pumpkin recipes that I attempt to bake and cook my way through every Fall.
On Saturday morning, I opened up one of those big cans of pumpkin to toss a few tablespoons into my pancake batter. That left 7/8 of a can of pumpkin just sitting in my fridge begging to find it's way into something yummy. A mostly dreary Saturday called for a little baking.
I turned to my pumpkin board for some direction. Ina Garten recipes never fail. She kind of annoys me, but she's got skills in the kitchen. So, I went with an Ina pumpkin cupcake recipe paired up with a Skinnytaste pumpkin spice cream cheese frosting. Ina's cupcake recipe includes a maple frosting, but I'm fresh outta maple extract, so a spiced cream cheese frosting came to the rescue.
I made a few itty-bitties and a few regular sized cupcakes. They didn't disappoint. And the frosting was beater-licking good.
Have you whipped up anything pumpkin lately?
Maybe you can't stand pumpkin and you have a different favorite fall flavor?
What's baking, guys?
