Sweet Pumpkin Recipes

This weekend I’m going to buy some pumpkins and get baking. Following all the requests I’ve had for pumpkin recipes here are some of the sweet recipes I would like to try. Click on the titles to read the recipes and see the blogs they come from:

Pumpkin Scones

I love the look of these scones. There are lots of recipes online, but this recipe looks easy to follow. I’m going to try this minus the butterscotch chips, because I haven’t seen these in my local shop, maybe it’s an American thing?

These also call for buttermilk. I usually make this myself by using semi-skimmed milk and adding a teaspoon of lemon juice. Leave the milk for 10 minutes and it can be used just as buttermilk. This is good as it stops me having to make a special trip out to buy buttermilk.

These look totally yummy! I can’t wait to bake these.

Again it is an American recipe and there are a few adjustments to this recipe to be made. They use something called “Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice” which I understand as ground coffee with spice. Either leave this out altogether or add a couple of spoonfuls of plain coffee.

Canola oil is used, instead use vegetable oil.

I’ve eaten Pumpkin Pie once before and really enjoyed it. I’m not sure I’ll be cooking it this weekend, but I couldn’t leave it off my list!

This recipe uses a bought pumpkin spice mix, which I isn’t easily available in the UK. Instead refer to the spices I added to my pumpkin parfait recipe. Basically, ground cinnamon and ground allspice, but nutmeg and ginger as well would be good.

For the Pumpkin Puree which Americans often buy canned, check out my recipe for making homemade Pumpkin Puree.

Happy Baking!
