BHG Delish Dish

Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Pumpkin Cake


I am finally ready to embrace Fall with a fun new pumpkin recipe: Pumpkin S’more Whoopie Pies.  There is no stopping it.  The season is here to stay.

Pumpkin is the quintessential flavor of Fall, and it is rightfully so.  The flavor is universally lauded and perfectly adaptable for anything you can imagine from the savory to the sweet.  It also has this comforting quality that just makes you want to curl up on your couch to watch the leaves turn their vivid colors from your window.

I happen to love pumpkin in my dessert recipes around this time of year.  In fact, I get a bit addicted to its flavor especially when warming spices are added to the mix.  That love is exactly what lead me to the original BHG Pumpkin Spice Whoopies recipe.

I loved the simplicity of the recipe due to the use of cake mix.  These were so easy to make.  I made the cookie as is but made the following changes to the filling:

  • After the cookies were done baking, I flipped half upside down and added chocolate sauce (I microwaved some chocolate chips and heavy cream, stirred until melted to create a ganache) and a large marshmallow.
  • I placed the cookies under my oven’s broiler and waited until the marshmallows were melted and toasted.

  • Lastly I topped each marshmallow topped cookie with another cookie and served nice and warm.

These were seriously so fun to make and would be a hit with the kids.  I can’t imagine a more amusing way to bring in the excitement of fall than these pumpkin whoopie pies with a s’more twist.

I’m back with another pumpkin recipe for all of you! A few weeks ago, I kicked off pumpkin season with my coffee cake. Now I’m returning with this recipe for Double Decker Pumpkin Bread.

BHG has a huge collection of pumpkin recipes on their site. While I want to make all of them, this particular recipe won out this time round. Pumpkin bread with a creamy, cream cheese filling? Yum. Yes!

As the former owner of a B&B, I absolutely love quick breads like this. Not only are they easy to make, but you can serve them anytime of day. They are great for breakfast and with an afternoon cup of coffee. They also make a delicious dessert to top off a meal. Or, if you prefer, they can even help satisfy that late night sweet tooth.

As I’ve explained here before, one of the things I love about pumpkin sweets is the spices. Because of this, I decided to add a little extra spice to this bread. I followed the recipe exactly, but once my batter was mixed and ready for the pan, I added 1 1/2 cups of cinnamon chips to the batter.

Cinnamon chips are basically just liked chocolate chips, but cinnamon flavored.

They complement this recipe beautifully and add a special touch to the finished bread. Simply delicious!

If you’re looking for something full of fall pumpkin-y flavor be sure to give this recipe a try! You can find the original recipe here, and don’t forget the cinnamon chips.

Happy Baking!

It’s happened. I’ve officially started fall baking. After the first of September, I think it’s fair game. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year for cooking and baking. And when it comes to fall flavors, pumpkin is an obvious choice . So when I saw this recipe for Chocolate-Pumpkin Brownies, I knew I had to give them a try. The combination of the two sounded like a major flavor win!

I must admit that I totally cheated while baking up this deliciousness. The recipe gives instructions for making brownies from scratch. I used a box mix. To be honest, I kind of love brownie mix. Plus, it makes whipping up a dessert so easy. I also omitted the walnuts for my version. I’m just not a fan of them in my brownies.

I also lined my pan with aluminum foil. I never did this until recently, but it makes the brownies so easy to remove and cut. Another plus – clean up is a breeze!

I absolutely love this recipe for so many reasons. First, my entire house smelled fabulous throughout the baking process. Second, the flavor combination is fantastic. Third, the pumpkin cream cheese mixture added an incredible amount of moistness to the brownies.

So if you are looking for a quick and easy fall-inspired dessert, give this a try. You can find the full recipe here. Have you started your fall baking yet? What’s your favorite autumn treat?
