Last week, I presented you with Six of the best Halloween recipes from some of Australia’s best bloggers. I’m not big on Halloween per se, but I am big on pumpkin. Some might say, I am huge on yumkin, ooops, I mean pumpkin! I love it every which way and in every which recipe, savoury or sweet. So in the spirit of the occasion that is Halloween, I present to you six of the most utterly delicious pumpkin inspired sweet treats from some of Australia’s finest. If you thought the Americans and the Canadians had the monopoly on the best of pumpkin, you were wrong! Just sayin’!
Now, here’s the thing. A lot of sweet pumpkin recipes use a pumpkin spice blend which is not readily available here in Australia, but you can make your own, and these Warm Spiced Cupcakes too, thanks to the lovely ladies at Gourmet Getaways.
And in a shameless flurry of self promotion, I’m going to add two of my favourite pumpkin recipes to the mix.
These Pumpkin Passion Cupcakes are the black cat’s whiskers. They’re delicious on their lonesome, but really, that cream cheese icing is the tops!
What’s your favourite way to bake pumpkin? Do tell!
