Pumpkin Spice Recipes to Share with Your Friends and Family this Fall!:

Seeded Pumpkin Bread:

  • I like to call this one…the Starbucks pumpkin bread dupe.
  • It is simple, cozy, and delicious for any occasion.
1 1/3 cups of granulated sugar Then,
1 1/3 cups of brown sugar Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 cup of unsalted butter, melted Mix your wet ingredients in one bowl.
4 large eggs Mix your dry ingredients in another separate bowl.
1 can pumpkin Beat mixtures together.
2/3 cup buttermilk or milk (if you’re like me and hate buying one use ingredients) Coat a pan with butter or non-stick spray and divide batter evenly.
2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp baking powder Add toppings: pepitas, nuts, or pumpkin seeds if you want.
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour Let bake for 50 to 60 minutes and cover with aluminum for last 10-15 minutes.
The extras (1/2 tsp each): Nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract Let cool for an hour and then serve.

Pumpkin-Spice Bundt Cake:

  • This is going to be your go-to fall party addition as it is simply just TOO GOOD!
  • While this is an amazing pumpkin spice option for the fall, it is time consuming to bake and will require a specific pan, so if you are up for the challenge, take it.
1 cup salted butter Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 cup sugar Mix wet ingredients into one bowl.
1 cup brown sugar Mix dry ingredients into a separate bowl.
4 eggs Fold mixtures together; beat mixture.
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin & 1 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice Grease bundt pan and pour in mixture.
1 cup milk Bake for 50-60 minutes.
1 tbsp baking powder; 1/2 tsp baking soda; 1/2 tsp salt Cool for an hour and then serve.
Feel free to do all the fancy extras like a topping, adding in nuts, or sprucing up the cake. I enjoy it plain.

Perfectly Pumpkin Bars:

  • This will be a crowd favorite, a holiday pleaser, and the tastiest bite of fall joy.
  • These are certainly my favorite fall treat; and I can freeze, refrigerate, and keep them for a while to satisfy my fall sugary cravings.
2 cups all-purpose flour Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1/2 tbsp cinnamon; 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl.
1 tsp baking soda; 1 tsp baking powder; 1/2 tsp salt Mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
2 eggs Combine and fold mixtures together.
3/4 brown sugar Grease a pan; evenly spread out mixture
