Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

Happy Friday! Here is a pumpkin recipe that you can make during the weekend. I’m using my pumpkin bread recipe and gave it a couple of twists. For the chocolate part, I added some dark cocoa powder and hot espresso. If you can, use dark cocoa powder because it gives an extra rich color to the bread but if not, just use regular cocoa powder.

This bread is light and perfect for Fall season and you don’t need a mixer for this recipe, just 2 bowls!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

I have been looking for canned pumpkin for about a week, finally I found some today at my local Trader Joe’s. I went to different supermarkets in my area and they don’t have any left and they might not have more until next month they said. Is finding canned pumpkin as hard as getting toilet paper at the beginning of the pandemic? What’s going on? Anyway, I’m very happy that I got some cans and that I’m good for the month.

Rolls might sound hard to make but really they are not. You do not have to be an experienced baker to use yeast. Follow step by step the directions and you’ll achieve the best pumpkin rolls ever.

I always bake my cinnamon rolls with all-purpose flour but because my husband is making sourdough and he has bread flour in the pantry, I decided to use bread flour instead. The result was as I expected, they were softer and they grew more. But, if you want/prefer to use all-purpose flour that’s totally fine.

Baked Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

Happy Tuesday! This is a super quick and easy recipe that you can make at home. My husband and I like donuts but one of the reasons that we don’t eat them that much is that they are fried. This is why I prefer to make my own at home and I don’t fry them, I bake them.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes With Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

This is another good recipe for you to try at home if you can’t wait for Fall season to start. These cupcakes are made with pumpkin puree, spices and oil which makes the mini cakes soft and moist.

My husband is not a pumpkin fan but he has started to enjoy all my pumpkin goodies because I think I have found out the right amount of pumpkin and spices. These cupcakes are a great example of this because they are not heavy and won’t leave you a strong taste in your mouth. If you don’t like pumpkin, give this recipe a chance, you’ll be surprised.

The frosting is a light and silky cinnamon cream cheese frosting that goes really well with a pumpkin cake.
