10 FALL TREATS TO SATISFY YOUR SWEET TOOTH
The season of change has arrived, and with it, the approach of the winter solstice. Getting your fill of pumpkin and apple goodies is a no-brainer when the weather turns cold, and the leaves begin to change color. If stress eating is a thing, could this be a sign of the changing seasons? An improved side effect of the changing seasons, as opposed to SAD or some other debilitating condition, makes eating pumpkin spice pastries all the more difficult.
That’s all I have to comment for now…
For the upcoming holidays, we’ve compiled a list of pumpkin and apple delights that will be sure to please your family and friends.
Indulge in a pumpkin-spiced, cinnamon, and apple-flavored dessert to satisfy your deepest cravings.
10 FALL TREATS
FLUFFY APPLE CIDER PANCAKES
On a Sunday morning, you’ll be able to satisfy all of your demands for pancakes and sweet fall goodies with these homemade apple cider pancakes. The aroma of heated butter, spiced apple cider, and maple syrup is the best as a starting point for the best autumnal vibes. The recipe is tried and true, so you can count on getting praise and inquiries like, “Where did you acquire the apple cider pancake mix?!” from your loved ones. That’s where I got it from.
GLAZED PUMPKIN SCONES
For reasons that remain a mystery, we’re happy to report that you can make your version of Starbucks’ charmingly striped pumpkin scones using real food products and a slew of homemade goodness! The calorie amount on the food labels doesn’t make you feel bad about yourself. 😉
CINNAMON SUGAR APPLE FRITTERS
There are donuts in this room. Fritters are also available. Given that both are fried, sweet, and tasty, I’m not exactly clear what the distinction is. Try these simple apple fritters if you don’t want to deal with the fuss of making homemade donuts. These may become family-favorites thanks to their apple cider and grated apple flavoring! What occurred to us was exactly this. High-falutin donuts are not for me!
PUMPKIN TRES LECHES CAKE WITH SPICED CREAM
The importance of breaking out of your baking and dessert ruts can never be overstated, and this Pumpkin Tres Leches Cake with Spiced Cream is a perfect example. Pumpkin bread is fine, but this cake requires only a few more steps to produce a cake that is soft, moist, and full of autumnal spices. From the very first bite, it was impossible to resist.
PUMPKIN ENGLISH MUFFINS
To make English muffins from scratch may seem challenging at first, but once you give it a try you won’t go back. Because we couldn’t find English muffins in Beijing, we started cooking our own.
PUMPKIN MOCHI WITH PUMPKIN FILLING
When gourds are in season, people in Asia also like pumpkin sweets, despite the fact that it may appear like pumpkin is a distinctively North American component. Make these gorgeous mini Pumpkin Mochis instead of the traditional steamed pumpkin cubes (which you can keep for the post-holiday diets). Because, well, they’re pretty!
PUMPKIN CUPCAKES WITH MAPLE VANILLA BUTTERCREAM
Try these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Vanilla Buttercream if you want to show off your Martha Stewart skills at the PTA bake sale this fall. They’re bursting with flavor, and they’re also really cute. Obviously.
Making your granola is a great way to satisfy a seasonal craving, and it’s quite simple. Pumpkin boosts the dish’s fiber and antioxidant content. If you have a lot of time on your hands, make a lot of it and either eat it or give it away!
DARK CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN SCONES
After carving jack-o’-lanterns as a child, my parents saved the pumpkin seeds. The pumpkin carving may be too much work for me now that I’m older, but the seeds are worth saving. We opted to adorn our pumpkin scones with dark chocolate and sprinkle them with a generous dose of pumpkin seeds to create a completely acceptable, antioxidant-filled treat for breakfast!
APPLE CINNAMON COFFEE CAKE
You can’t beat coffee cake. It’s hard to beat apple cake for taste and texture. A slice of Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake is truly delicious. Adding apples to a regular coffee cake alleviates the stress of adding oil and butter, making the cake moist and pleasantly apple-y.
