Since I don’t want to completely turn this blog into Halloween Central, well, at least not yet, I figured I would focus more on fall in general today. There is no time of the year that I enjoy baking more than I do in the fall. Apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, sweet potatoes, caramel, pies, breads… The cooler weather (feels like a pipe dream at this point), crisp breezes, spending time outdoors, stores carrying actual canned pumpkin and not just the damn pumpkin pie mix that is useless for my purposes – I love everything about fall. So let’s see what kind of fall treats we can find from bakers and bloggers…
My personal contribution is my pumpkin muffins. I’ve shared them a few times as I really do love these. The recipe has evolved over about two years into a lovely balance of healthy, lowfat and delicious. And they freeze really well. They also work GREAT as muffin tops.
And here is what other bakers and bloggers are baking up for fall…
The Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Rolls (also known as what most of my friends and family will be waiting for when Christmas comes – if you haven’t made them you m-u-s-t).
